Spirit Airlines to resume all remaining international service from Orlando

Spirit Airlines today announced plans to offer more than 80 departures per day at MCO by the end of 2021.

The company unveiled the largest schedule it has ever operated from Orlando, including new flights to destinations stretching from New Hampshire to the Dominican Republic along with reinstating the balance of its international operation.

Spirit confirmed plans to restore pre-pandemic flights to Cartagena, Colombia (CTG); Guatemala City, Guatemala (GUA); Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ); Port-au-Prince, Haiti (PAP) and San Salvador, El Salvador (SAL) while increasing San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) to daily service. The airline’s full reinstatement of its international schedule comes on the heels of a complete reactivation of its domestic network from MCO that was finished in time for the summer travel season. New domestic options include Louisville (SDF); Manchester, N.H. (MHT); Miami (MIA); Milwaukee (MKE) and St. Louis (STL).

Spirit’s Investment in Orlando

Spirit’s growth at Orlando International makes it the airport’s largest international airline and second largest airline overall, which means more jobs at the airport and behind the scenes.

  • Last month the airline opened its second Operations Control Center (OCC), which brings another 75 positions to Orlando and joins an existing South Florida facility that manages the flow of planes throughout the carrier’s network 365 days a year. The Orlando OCC joins Spirit’s existing crew base and state-of-the-art inflight training facility at MCO.
  • This year, 16 new fuel-efficient Airbus A320neo planes will join the airline’s Fit Fleet™, which is among the youngest in the industry. Next year, Spirit plans to accept another 21 new planes.
  • Spirit is welcoming Guests back to MCO with a refreshed ticket lobby featuring a bold new look and digital signage to help international and domestic travelers find the right check-in counter quickly. The airline worked with Synect Media to update the space and ensure a smooth journey from curb to gate as it continues to grow in Orlando.
