Summer travel is getting easier for Guests booking to/from northern New Jersey with the announcement of new, nonstop flight options serving destinations stretching from coast to coast. Spirit Airlines announced four new routes at Newark (EWR) with daily nonstop flights to Indianapolis (IND), Los Angeles (LAX), Oakland (OAK), and Pittsburgh (PIT).
As a bonus, Spirit will also add a temporary route to Louisville (SDF) giving New Jersey Guests easy access to the Kentucky Derby. The two SDF flights will only operate on May 5 and May 8.
“We know people are eager to travel this summer, and we’re happy to add new, high-value options for Guests looking to visit friends and family in northern New Jersey or those seeking affordable options to travel from the Garden State across the country,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines.
The latest EWR route launches are part of Spirit’s continued investment in northern New Jersey. Spirit will offer 24 departures on peak days at EWR, doubling in size compared to 2019. After only six years of serving Newark, Spirit now ranks as the fourth-largest carrier by seats at Newark.
“As our domestic travel options continue to grow, we are excited to have Spirit expand its service routes,” said James Gill, general manager of New Jersey Airports. “This helps keep Newark Liberty competitive as it provides business and leisure travelers with additional choices and greater flexibility in planning their trips.”
