Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines has announced the addition of a new nonstop daily flight between Phoenix and the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The Florida-based airlines launched operations in the second-most populated city in the Badger State on Thursday.
Spirit’s service between Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and Milwaukee Mitchell Airport begins Nov. 17.
“It’s just a great feeling being here today to welcome new air service to Milwaukee. When you think about where we were a year ago, it’s hard to imagine that we would be introducing a new airline here at MKE, let alone one that’s expanding so quickly,” said Milwaukee County Airport Director Brian Dranzik. “Spirit Airlines is now up to eight nonstop destinations from MKE, which provides Milwaukee travelers even more connections to where they want to go.”
Spirit continues to seize opportunities to bring affordable, high value fares to new markets as the demand for air travel increases. This year, 16 new fuel-efficient Airbus A320neo planes will join the airline’s Fit Fleet™, which is among the youngest in the industry. Next year, Spirit plans to accept another 21 new planes to continue adding the convenient and exciting travel options Spirit Guests are looking for.
The airline’s Free Spirit® loyalty program is also new this year, and it offers the fastest way to earn rewards and status.* Members are discovering opportunities to earn points on every booking, every bag and every Big Front Seat®. Plus, options like Points Pooling with friends or family make it easier than ever to plan vacations and trips to visit loved ones.
As Arizona rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic, Sky Harbor has added several new routes and carriers.
Last month, Southwest Airlines announced plans to add year-round nonstop flights between Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and four Hawaii destinations.
Low-fare carrier Frontier recently began offering nonstop flights three times a week between Phoenix and Atlanta.
Discount airline Allegiant joined the lineup at Sky Harbor for the first time in late May with twice-weekly service to Provo, Utah, and Stockton, California, beginning in October. Allegiant primarily operates from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
