Despite concerns over the spreading coronavirus, Spirit Airlines continues to expand its international service. This week it announced two new nonstop flights out of New Orleans: Cancun, Mexico, and San Pedro, Honduras.

Here are the route details:

  • Service to Cancun (CUN) will begin on Wednesday, June 10th. The flight will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 11:00 AM. The return flight leaves at 1:56 PM.
  • Service to San Pedro (SAP) will begin Thursday, June 11th. The flight will operate on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 10:10 AM. The return flight leaves at 12:30 PM.

This announcement will bring the airline’s total destinations served out of New Orleans to 23. Spirit originally entered the Crescent City market in 2013 with flights to Dallas-Fort Worth.

Director of Aviation for New Orleans International Airport Kevin Dolliole said, “New Orleans has one of the largest populations of Hondurans in the United States, and we are thrilled that Spirit Airlines is now offering direct service from MSY to San Pedro Sula, Hondurasproviding a much-needed connection for our community. On top of that, additional service to Cancun, Mexico will give our passengers even more options. With Spirit being our fastest-growing airline, we are grateful for their commitment to this community and look forward to a long-standing relationship with this carrier.”

Spirit CEO Ted Christie boasted, “We are incredibly proud to open up nonstop international service from New Orleans with two destinations at once. Our guests asked us for international connectivity, and we are excited to offer them the Best Value in the Sky as they explore new places. Adding these international routes is part of our promise to invest in the Guest. Whether they fly to Cancun for leisure or to San Pedro Sula to reconnect with friends and family, we will continue to connect our Guests with the communities and destinations they seek the most.”

    Oh thats good, so when Spirit cancels a flight or there are restrictions due to the coronavirus, pax will be stranded for days or weeks. What a garbage airline.
