If you want to get out of Houston’s heat this summer, Spirit Airlines (Nasdaq: SAVE) has introduced new seasonal service.
Florida-based Spirit will launch nonstop service from Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) beginning May 1 and running through Nov. 1.
From May 1 to May 21, flights will depart Houston at 6 a.m. daily, and return flights will depart Minneapolis at 6:56 p.m. daily. From May 22 to Nov. 1, flights will depart Houston at 6:15 a.m. and depart Minneapolis at 8:10 p.m.
Also on Wednesday, Spirit introduced daily nonstop service between Minneapolis and the Thurgood Marshall Baltimore/Washington International Airport for the same time period.
Spirit began its first Houston service in 2012 at IAH, and now it offers daily nonstop service from Houston to Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, Detroit and Orlando, Fla.
Spirit offers ultra-low base fares and charges fees for many other options, such as choosing a seat in advance or placing a bag in the overhead bin.
In October, the airline said it was considering correlating fees to flight demand, The Associated Press reported.
