Spirit Airlines Begins Taking Reservations For Flights That Will Make It Miami’s Second Largest

Spirit Airlines moved forward on a plan this week that will make it the second biggest airline at Miami International Airport.

According to the airline, all 30 new MIA routes that were announced last month were released for sale to the public over the weekend and are bookable today. The flight schedule itself is also identical to what was first announced.

The first flights will begin in October. Spirit says that by November, it will become the second largest carrier at MIA.

Spirit reiterated this week in a press release that it will remain the largest airline at FLL.

The airline hopes to have five gates at MIA, John Kirby, Spirit’s VP of Network Planning told Cranky Flier. As of last month, the airline still wasn’t sure which terminal they would be located in.

Kirby said that costs per enplaned passenger at FLL had risen from $7 to $12. At the same time, a new cost structure at MIA brought it to within a couple of dollars of FLL.

The new Miami operation will not be set up with the goal of serving connecting passengers. Fort Lauderdale will remain the airline’s primary gateway to the Caribbean and Latin America, Kirby said.

At least they actually helped the local economy and paid their restaurant bills and didn’t take up side space.

Not like the current animals that run away without laying and mostly just stand on the sidewalks with huge speakers disrupting the local businesses because the lack manners. They trash the place and make it look like a scene from a prison movie. Disgusting.

Do you think that the wave of illegal immigrants is coming with the help of the coyotes ( cartel members) for free?
Not to mention the traffic of drugs and humans going rampant at the border ….and yes Kamala never been in Europe, so who cares
And for the liberals with stickers that say Humans are not illegals … I don’t see any of them sponsoring a family from Central America and bringing to live in their houses and pay expenses, medical care and education!

Is that why conservatives at the time lashed out at Obama and labeled him “The Deporter-n-Chief?”

The other day i went to Zuma for an afternoon drink and crossed the drive way and i was amazed to see at the drive way the most strangest crowd coming in and out of the marina. I can barely afford to go out every now and then and i just couldn’t understand how those people could afford to even rent a boat

Budget airlines deserve budget airlines like in Europe. In Paris they ship off the ringarde to Beauvais and the chav Brits go to Stansted for their Ryanair/easyJet fix. I’m sure something can be figured out for all the stimulus bunnies hoppin on down to South Beach. I propose that MIA seriously do something to block Spirit’s bid and shaft them up to FLL or maybe develop a terminal next to the private aircraft hangar at Opa Locka for the riffraff
