“We are thrilled to name Hartford as the 60th city to join our growing network,” said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. “Spirit’s super low Bare Fares™ with Frill Control™ provide a new option to customers in Connecticut and western Massachusetts. As the first U.S. airline to give customers the choice to pay for only the extras they want, we know Spirit’s arrival in Hartford will free the region from high airfares and give many more travelers the ability to spend those savings on vacation.”
“Bradley International Airport is a major economic driver for Connecticut, and it continues to be a player in our efforts to grow our economy, boost tourism, and improve our transportation system,” said Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy. “The addition of Spirit Airlines gives residents and businesses in our region another option in a growing, diversified selection of airlines that are servicing our region’s largest airport, and we welcome them to our state.”
“Myrtle Beach service is an important enhancement to Bradley’s route structure, and it is a location that has been frequently requested by our travelers,” said CAA Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E. “The additional frequencies between Bradley, Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale will provide our passengers with more options, while also helping spur competition and lower fares amongst the airlines.”
