Spirit Airlines is expanding to 5 new markets in the New Year. Plattsburgh, NY (Greater Montreal area), Niagara Falls, NY (Greater Buffalo/Toronto area), Latrobe, PA (Greater Pittsburgh area), Charleston, WV, and Dallas, TX will all be added to Spirit Airline's route map next year. The new nonstop service from/to Fort Lauderdale will connect each city to Spirit's growing network throughout the U.S. and Latin America. Some cities will also begin nonstop service from/to Myrtle Beach in May.
Although Spirit is a no frills to the max airline and you will have to pay for carry-on luggage that doesn't fit under your seat, these are some excellent fares for the shoestring traveler out there. Note: These fares are available only to Spirit's $9 Fare Club, which anyone can join for an annual fee of $59.95. If you like to travel a lot, this fee will be recuperated in savings very quickly. Non-member fares are higher, but still a bargain.
