SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Low-cost air carrier Spirit Airlines will soon start flying from San Francisco International Airport, airport officials said.
The Florida-based carrier is scheduled to begin flights May 25 from San Francisco, and will run one or two flights a day to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport with connections to other cities, said airport spokesman Mike McCarron.
Despite losing millions of dollars last year and facing battles with pilot and flight attendant unions over staffing levels, the airline is undergoing a period of rapid expansion domestically and abroad as it seeks to challenge dominant low-cost carriers Southwest Airlines and JetBlue Airways.
