FORT MYERS, Fla., Dec. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) is celebrating three decades of serving Southwest Florida with the start of the only nonstop flight between Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport (SJU) and Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW). Spirit first landed in Fort Myers in 1993 and has grown to offer nonstop service to 14 destinations and 20-peak day departures from the Midwest to the East Coast.

“RSW is a great, long-time partner of Spirit Airlines, and we’re thankful to the Fort Myers community for their continued support as we add the only nonstop service to SJU on our 30th anniversary,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “The addition of nonstop service to San Juan creates an exciting opportunity to connect the two vibrant communities with reliable and convenient service.”
