"We're excited to introduce our low fare options to even more of the warm and sunny places Minnesotans want to visit during the cold of winter," said Spirit's Vice President of Network Planning Mark Kopczak. "Since starting service at MSP a little over a year ago, our unique product offering has become popular with savvy, value-conscious customers throughout the region who appreciate saving money on travel with Spirit's ultra low fares, optional add-ons and low total prices that are tough to beat." "Spirit Airlines' continued growth at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is good news for travelers, increasing competition on routes and enhancing low-fare options," said Jeff Hamiel, Executive Director/CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which owns and operates MSP.

I am pleased that, beginning in November, MSP travelers will be able to fly directly to four more popular warm-weather destinations on Spirit Airlines."
