“Spirit Airlines has served the Puerto Rican community for more than two decades, offering affordable fares to connect family and friends across the United States,” said John Kirby, Spirit Airlines Vice President of Network Planning. “We continue our growth in San Juan with five new nonstop routes, reaffirming our commitment to the island and making it even easier to travel.”

Spirit first landed on the island in 2001 with flights to San Juan and has expanded its Puerto Rican route map to include Aguadilla and Ponce. The airline will offer 21 San Juan departures by June 2023, making it the second largest airline by destinations, seats and available seat miles (ASM). This adds to the airline’s island-wide growth, which represents more than 200% in the last four years.
