Bright yellow planes will soon be flying into the Home of the Blues for the first time as Spirit Airlines has announced the addition of Memphis to its route map, launching three daily, nonstop routes to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) in April 2022, followed by Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in June 2022. Memphis International Airport (MEM) will be the second Tennessee airport Spirit serves following its entrance into Nashville in 2019.
“We’re excited about serving Memphis because we think travellers in Western Tennessee and nearby states could use more high value flight options to popular leisure destinations,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “Also, Memphis is a vibrant community with so much to explore in music, food, culture and more for visitors looking for a rich experience.
Pace Cooper, Chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority Board of Commissioners commented: “The arrival of Spirit Airlines at MEM provides our passengers with more low-cost travel options, and reflects our continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. These three new daily routes indicate that Spirit sees Memphis as a promising market and we look forward to their continued growth at MEM.”
