WHY IT RATES: Travel agents with clients who love to visit the Caribbean, Latin America and Mexico will have more flight options to sell thanks to Spirit's expanded service.-Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
The lush beauty and diverse cultures of Latin America await as Spirit Airlines continues its international expansion, this time from Houston. Beginning September 6, Spirit will start service from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to San Salvador, El Salvador with year-round service running three times weekly to Monsenor Oscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport (SAL).
The next day, on September 7, Spirit will begin nonstop flights between Houston and Guatemala City, Guatemala with year-round service eventually running four times weekly to La Aurora International Airport (GUA). The additions offer affordable fares for international travel to see friends, family, or just for fun.
The new routes will complement Spirit's existing international service between Houston and Cancun and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, as well as San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The routes are set to strengthen Spirit's growing network while capitalizing on Houston's diverse travel needs.
The announcement comes just weeks after Spirit announced it was launching nearly a dozen routes from Orlando, Florida to Latin America and the Caribbean.
"The addition of San Salvador and Guatemala City to our Houston destination list will provide our guests more options to visit loved ones and experience all of what these amazing regions have to offer," said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines' Vice President of Network Planning. "Spirit continues to prove itself as a leader in travel to Latin America and the Caribbean by offering ultra-low fares allowing more to take advantage of our reliable service."
With Spirit's expanding network, the airline continues to improve on its on-time performance and guest satisfaction, while building upon its larger commitment to invest in the guest experience. The airline recently announced state-of-the-art high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity will be installed on its entire fleet by summer of 2019.
Recent Department of Transportation data shows Spirit Airlines among the top carriers for on-time performance and baggage handling.
