Spirit Airlines to Fly from Florida to San José

January 26, 2007

Spirit Airlines Wednesday announced it plans to begin nonstop service between its hub in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and San José beginning April 5, according to a statement posted on the airline’s Web site.

Flights will be offered Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and the route will be serviced by Airbus aircraft, the statement said. The airline will also offer connecting flights to San José from other U.S. destinations.

Spirit offers service to 15 other Latin American and Caribbean cities; Costa Rica will be its first Central American destination.

“We are thrilled to be offering our terrific, low-fare service to one of Central America’s most beautiful countries,” said Luis Zúñiga, Spirit marketing representative and Costa Rica native, according to the statement.

“We’re looking forward to taking Floridians to enjoy Costa Rica, whether it’s to reconnect with family or take advantage of the vast opportunities for ecotourism.”

The airline is offering special introductory fares between Ft.Lauderdale and San José on select dates, when purchased on www.spiritair.com.

For example, $69 one-way flights are available on set dates when purchased by Feb. 7. However, these fares do not include “government taxes and  fees up to $125 per roundtrip,” the statement said. Information on these and other fares is available on the airline’s Web site.
