Today Spirit Airlines launches service to Pensacola (PNS), the airline’s fifth nonstop destination from the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF). This follows Spirit’s inaugural flights from Louisville just two weeks ago.
“Just a few weeks ago we were celebrating Spirit’s arrival at SDF and this is great that we’re already welcoming another new flight,” said Dan Mann, Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “The Florida panhandle is a popular vacation area for travelers in the region. The start of service to Pensacola is just in time for summer travel and offers our customers an affordable and convenient option to get there.”
Seasonal flights to Pensacola from Louisville are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays during the summer travel season abord an Airbus A320 with 180-seats. Tickets are currently on sale at www.spirit.com.
In addition to Pensacola, Spirit offers nonstop service to Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Orlando (MCO) from Louisville. Beginning in mid-November, Spirit will also offer service to Fort Myers (RSW) and Tampa (TPA) at SDF.
