Spirit Airlines to Start Daily Nonstop Service to St. Croix
Beginning this spring, Spirit Airlines will serve the island of St. Croix with daily nonstop flights between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX).
According to a news report posted on South Florida Caribbean News, U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism, Joseph Boschulte reported that Spirit will expand its schedule between St. Croix and Fort Lauderdale from four flights each week to once daily, effective April 22, 2020.
He thanked Florida’s Hometown Airline for recognizing the growing interest in travelling between St. Croix and the mainland, along with making the trip easier for people nationwide.
Spirit recently announced an upgrade in the frequency of flights on 15 routes in and out of Fort Lauderdale and Orlando in order to offer travelers more flexible and convenient schedules.
The Department of Tourism’s new campaign will focus on digital and social media, including Spotify and Pandora, as well as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Print and broadcast will launch in late February and early March, respectively.
Spirit Airlines recently won Low Cost Airline of the Year at the CAPA (Centre for Aviation) World Aviation Summit and unveiled a complete cabin redesign featuring ergonomically-designed seats, an improved aesthetic and a modern look and feel.
