New Nonstop Flights Can Take Western Pennsylvanians To The Strip For Less
MIRAMAR, FL (November 4, 2014) – The bright lights of Las Vegas will be a lot easier and cheaper to get to beginning next April. Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ: SAVE) today announced new daily service from Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in Latrobe/Pittsburgh to Las Vegas starting April 16, 2015.
“Nonstop flights to fabulous Las Vegas are sure to be popular with our customers in Western Pennsylvania,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines Vice President of Network Planning. “Spirit’s low Bare Fare™ with Frill Control™ allows our customers to save up to 40%, on average, on their total price for air travel, which means there’s more for them to spend on the wide variety of entertainment and hotel options when they arrive in Las Vegas.”
Spirit currently offers year-round flights to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, with seasonal service to Myrtle Beach, Fort Myers (starting 12/18/2014) and Tampa (starting 12/19/2014). Every time Spirit announces a new route from Latrobe/Pittsburgh there’s genuine excitement about saving on airfares, and when combined with Arnold Palmer Regional Airport’s customer friendly terminal and free parking, it’s a WIN, WIN!
“We’re convinced that this new destination is going to be immensely popular” said Gabe Monzo, Westmoreland County Airport Authority Executive Director. “When Spirit gets this route up and running, we will be doing four very popular flights every day. It’s going to be crazy around here, but that’s the kind of crazy we like. We can’t wait!”
Even the airport’s namesake is excited.
“I am really pleased with this latest development,” said Latrobe’s most famous citizen, Arnold Palmer. “Things just keep getting better at the airport. This new daily service Spirit Airlines is starting to Las Vegas next spring opens up the West for us and should be very popular.”
“We are thrilled that our partners at Spirit continue to expand service to Las Vegas,” said Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Authority. “Every new destination that is added to the schedule provides additional convenience and flexibility for travelers.”
