MIRAMAR, Fla., Dec. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spirit Airlines (Nasdaq:SAVE) and its flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), announced today that they reached a tentative agreement for a five-year contract. The tentative agreement, which is subject to ratification by the flight attendant membership, planned for first quarter 2014, was unanimously supported by the union's leadership. The agreement was reached with the assistance of the National Mediation Board.

"We are pleased that we reached a mutually favorable agreement that recognizes our flight attendants for the great job they do every day for the company and our customers, while also supporting Spirit's continued growth," said Spirit Chief Operating Officer John Bendoraitis. "We look forward to working closely with our AFA partners and flight attendants to become the airline of choice for our customers and employer of choice for our team members."

"Throughout this process, Spirit flight attendants have stood together and were prepared to reach a new, improved contract that reflected our valuable work as first responders. The dedication and professionalism of flight attendants helps make Spirit a thriving and vibrant airline. We are an integral part of this airline and we believe that this tentative agreement recognizes our contributions to Spirit Airlines. It is now up to flight attendants to review the improvements and make a final decision through their vote," said Todd St. Pierre, AFA President at Spirit.
