If you're in the market for a cheap trip from Houston to Detroit or Denver, Spirit Airlines will soon have you covered.
The no-frills airline, which first took off from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport last September, announced that it will provide daily nonstop service between these two destinations and IAH beginning this summer.
Among those opportunities is nonstop service between Los Angeles and Houston, which is scheduled to begin on April 25.
Effective June 13, Houston to Denver flights will depart daily at 5:45 p.m., arriving at Denver International Airport at 7:08 p.m. Flights from Denver (departing at 9 a.m.) to Houston (arriving at 12:19 p.m.) will continue on to Orlando. (The Orlando service first launched on Valentine's Day.)
Detroit-bound flights will depart from IAH at 9:15 a.m. daily and arrive at 1:25 p.m., with return flights leaving Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport at 2:05 p.m. and arriving in Houston at 3:48 p.m.
"Spirit Airlines continues to find new business opportunities within Houston's thriving economy," Mario Diaz, director of aviation for the Houston Airport System, said in a statement.
Among those opportunities is nonstop service between Los Angeles and Houston, which is scheduled to begin on April 25 of this year.
Following the philanthropic lead of other airlines serving the Houston area, Spirit has selected five local charities — AIDS Foundation, Alzheimer's Association, Boys and Girls Clubs, JDRF and Susan G. Komen for the Cure Houston — and the one with the top votes by March 31 will receive a $10,000 cash prize through the airline's Destination Give program. Vote here.
