Spirit Airlines Plans Service to Cartagena, Colombia
Spiritís Entrance to Cartagena to Be Possible as a Result of Initiatives Taken by the Colombian Government in Releasing Tariff Floors, Extending Bilateral Agreements with the U.S., and Including Cartagena in Open Skies
MIRAMAR, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the coming months, passengers will have a new alternative in flying to Cartagena, Colombia from Fort Lauderdale. Spirit Airlines has received authorization from the U.S. Department of Transportation to begin service between the U.S. and Colombia, and is currently working through the Colombian regulatory process in order to begin operating the first ultra low cost carrier (ULCC) service to Colombia.
Spirit Airlines plans to begin operations from Fort Lauderdale to Cartagena aboard its fleet of Airbus 319 aircraft. In addition, Spirit is looking to initiate operations to other Colombian cities subject to the necessary government authorizations, and will service the market with fares lower than current competitive fares.
Spirit will service the operations to Colombia with a fleet of Airbus 319s with a capacity of 144 passengers, which will increase travel opportunities for travelers to Colombia from South Florida, and its connecting network throughout the United States, with its signature ultra low fares.
"We would like to applaud President Uribeís vision for seeing Cartagena as a tourism and industrial capital of the Caribbean," said Barry Biffle, Spirit ís Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Spirit will do our part in supporting his vision by providing low fare access to fuel the growth. "
