Spirit Airlines will be the first U.S. ultra-low-cost carrier to offer nonstop flights to the new Tulum airport beginning in spring 2024. Delta Airlines was the first U.S. airline to announce daily nonstop flights to the new airport, which will also launch next March.
“Tulum is an increasingly popular choice for leisure travelers, and our direct flights from Florida will make a getaway to Mexico’s enchanting coastline more accessible than ever, just in time for spring break,” the airline’s Vice President of Network Planning John Kirby said.
Which US cities will Spirit Airlines connect with Tulum?
Spirit Airlines will offer flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).
Spirit considers Florida a gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean and said that “the new [Tulum] service adds a one-stop option to guests traveling from 53 cities across the US.”
What will be the flight frequency?
Once approved, Spirit will offer daily flights from both airports.
How much will tickets cost?
To celebrate its announcement, the airline is providing special one-way fares for travelers heading to Tulum for just US $149, including taxes and fees.
Spirit has said that these fares are available for travel between April 10 and May 21 next year, but a 21-day advance purchase is necessary.
When will flights launch?
The new service will begin on March 28, 2024.
The new routes to Tulum bring the airline’s international service out of Fort Lauderdale to 26 destinations, and from Orlando to 11.
