Cancun has long been the busiest airport in the wider Caribbean region, and it’s about to get even busier.
Spirit Airlines has announced plans to launch a new thrice-weekly flight from Nashville, TN to Cancun.
The new service, which will officially launch on Feb. 27, 2020, will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
“As one of the fastest growing cities in the country, the Music City is a perfect match for America’s fastest growing airline,” said John Kirby, vice president of network planning at Spirit, in a statement.
Just this week, Spirit officially kicked off its operations at Nashville International Airport.
Doug Kreulen, president and CEO of Nashville International Airport, said the new service “demonstrates the attractiveness of this market and their commitment to serving our community. We look forward to Spirit Airline’s continued growth in Music City.”
Another low-cost carrier, Southwest Airlines, also operates flights from Nashville to Cancun.
