Spirit Airlines touches down in Milwaukee, announces new routes

Spirit Airlines’ bright yellow planes touched down in Milwaukee for the first time today—carrying good news for travelers and a special gift for one of the region’s most revered charitable organizations.

The airline announced more nonstop routes coming soon to Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) during its inaugural celebration and presented a donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin.

Spirit will nearly triple the destinations it serves nonstop from MKE starting this fall. The carrier plans to add daily flights to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Fort Myers (RSW), Phoenix (PHX), and Tampa (TPA), plus three weekly flights to Cancun (CUN), the airline’s first international route from Milwaukee.
