Spirit Airlines Is Adding New Nonstop Caribbean Flights 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 29, 2023

Following the lead of Delta, ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines is launching flights to the Caribbean’s newest airport next year. 

Beginning March 28, Spirit will be operating nonstop flights from both Orlando and Fort Lauderdale to the Mexican Caribbean hotspot of Tulum. 

“Tulum is an increasingly popular choice for leisure travelers, and our direct flights from Florida will make a getaway to Mexico’s enchanting coastline more accessible than ever, just in time for spring break,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “We have a long history of serving Mexico, and Tulum’s new airport is a great addition that will make it easier for our Guests to get to the city and enjoy its beaches, history, and variety of unique experiences.”

Both routes will launch on March 28, with Orlando and Fort Lauderdale flights operating every day. 

The launch of Tulum will mean Spirit operates flights from Fort Lauderdale to 26 different destinations, and from Orlando to 11 different airports.

Tulum has been one of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean since the pandemic, with a surge in tourism numbers and a growing hotel pipeline. 

The latter includes a number of major brands, including the recently-opened Secrets resort in Tulum, part of the Hyatt Inclusive Collection.
