Spirit resumes seasonal flights



Spirit Airlines has resumed seasonal flights to major hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago and Boston, according to a press release from the company.

The company will also bring back 22 seasonal routes including Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago and Boston to and from ACY.

The airline will also be adding 14 new routes throughout the country.




Spirit began offering seasonal flights to the four major cities in 2014, when passenger traffic saw an 11 percent increase through the first seven months of 2014 compared with the same span last year.

Stephen Schuler, spokesperson for Spirit Airlines, said that Spirit bases its traveling network on how successful travel routes have done in the past.

“Our own numbers say that there is a demand for these markets at this time for both Atlantic City residents in the greater area and others who want to travel to these destinations,” Schuler said.




Schuler said adding routes like Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago and Boston as year-round routes are always under consideration.

“We’re taking on more aircraft every month so routes that we see as successful traffic patterns we definitely take note of, but it’s always based on the numbers and where we need to fly,” Schuler said.

The flights to the four cities are offered in Spring and Summer seasons.
