Spirit Airlines Expands Boston’s Logan Airport Service with 10 Daily Flights

Boston-based low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines is set to enhance its spring service by introducing 10 daily flights departing from Logan Airport. Among these additional flights, some will cater to new destinations. 

Beginning April 10, Spirit will initiate daily flights to Norfolk, Virginia; Charleston, South Carolina; and Houston, while also resuming a daily flight to Dallas. The one-way ticket prices for the Dallas and Norfolk flights commence at $64, and for Charleston and Houston, it will be $69.

In addition, extra flights will be introduced on current routes to Orlando, Miami, Fort Myers, Tampa, Myrtle Beach, and San Juan. With the commencement of these additional flights in April, Spirit Airlines will boast a total of 14 nonstop destinations and 25 daily departures from Boston.

Spirit-JetBlue merger was blocked last month

The expanded Spirit Airlines service at Logan Airport follows closely on the heels of a federal judge in Boston issuing a block on JetBlue’s attempt to acquire the budget-friendly airline for $3.8 billion.

The Justice Department filed a lawsuit to oppose the merger, contending that it would result in increased difficulty in finding affordable airfares. JetBlue countered, asserting that the merger would benefit customers by enabling the airline to compete with larger competitors.

Industry analyst Henry Harteveldt noted, “The odds were against JetBlue from the beginning because Spirit is a budget airline, and while JetBlue has low fares, it’s not considered a budget airline,” as reported by CBS MoneyWatch.

An appeal of the ruling is set to be heard by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston in June, according to the Associated Press.
