Spirit announced an expansion out west with new service to Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ), Boise Airport (BOI), and Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO). All three new markets will kick off service with daily nonstop flights to Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas (LAS) in August 2022.
“Announcing three new markets is an exciting milestone for Spirit Airlines and our guests as we deliver more high-value options for travel between the bright lights of Vegas and the huge variety of beautiful places to visit in New Mexico, Idaho and Northern Nevada,” said John Kirby, vice president of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “We can’t wait to welcome these new communities into our network and continue to provide More Go for our Guests as we celebrate our 20th year serving LAS.”
Adding the new service increases the carrier’s presence in Las Vegas to 41 nonstop destinations and up to 75 peak-day departures. This total represents an almost 30% year-over-year increase from Spirit’s service to LAS. Guests traveling from ABQ, BOI & RNO also gain connection opportunities through LAS to more than a dozen destinations. In addition to these three new markets, Spirit also recently announced upcoming nonstop service from LAS to Memphis and Salt Lake City.
“Spirit Airlines, LAS’s second-busiest carrier in 2021, continues to invest in the Las Vegas market and provide opportunities for travelers to experience this world-class destination,” said Chris Jones, Harry Reid International Airport chief marketing officer. “We look forward to soon welcoming even more visitors from Reno, Boise and Albuquerque. These are three great markets within our region, each of which should show two-way demand among vacationers, sports fans, students and business travelers.”
