MIRAMAR, Fla., Jan. 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spirit Airlines (Nasdaq:SAVE) the first Ultra-Low Cost Carrier in the Americas, is bringing more flights to Boston Logan Airport, with new daily nonstop service from Boston to Las Vegas, and seasonal service from Boston to Detroit and Cleveland, beginning April 2015.

"Spirit continues to add flights to important cities like Boston from Detroit and Cleveland, where our low fares have resonated with Midwestern travelers," said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines Vice President of Network Planning. "And Spirit's ultra-low Bare Fares™ plus Frill Control™ are sure to be a hit with cost conscious travelers in Boston heading to fabulous Las Vegas, where they can spend more of their money on the hotels, the shows, and on the many attractions only Vegas can offer, instead of spending the bulk of their travel budget on airfare."

With these additional routes Spirit Airlines will now operate nonstop flights from Boston to ten cities. Current routes include: Atlantic City, Chicago (O'Hare), Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Myrtle Beach, and West Palm Beach. The daily service to Las Vegas and the seasonal service to Detroit and Cleveland will begin April 16, 2015.

"With Spirit growing its routes from Boston Logan International Airport to 10 markets, the low-cost carrier brings competition to important markets," said Ed Freni, Massport's Director of Aviation. "This is great news for New England because competition means lower fares and travelers end up winning."

Spirit also offers connecting service from Boston to over 30 additional cities in the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America.
