Spirit Airlines announces next new destination: booming Nashville

Rapidly growing Spirit Airlines is expanding to Nashville, joining a long list of airlines drawn to the city’s economic boom and tourism surge.

The discount carrier with the bright yellow planes plans to begin daily nonstop service between Nashville International Airport and six cities this fall, officials announced Monday. 

The cities are Baltimore, Las Vegas, New Orleans and three in Florida: Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa.

All but the Tampa flights begin on Oct. 10. Tampa service begins Nov. 5. Spirit will offer one daily flight in each direction on the new routes.

“Nashville is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and has a lot to offer,” Spirit CEO Ted Christie said in a statement announcing the new flights. “From the best live entertainment and family-friendly attractions to a robust food and craft beer scene, there is something for everyone. We’re equally excited to bring our new Nashville-area guests to great destinations throughout the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.”
