MIRAMAR, Fla., 2022-Mar-04 — /Travel PR News/ — The brightest planes in the sky will fly over the mountains of Northeastern Mexico for the first time this summer. Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) announced two daily nonstop flights from Monterrey International Airport (MTY) to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), starting in June 2022.
Spirit initially entered Mexico in 2003 when its first flight landed at Cancun International Airport (CUN) and continued to invest in the country by adding new stations at Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) in 2012 and Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) in 2021. This new MTY service is an expansion inland in addition to the popular beach destinations, focused on connecting friends and relatives with affordable flights.
Spirit’s Austin service will provide the only nonstop flight between the two cities, providing a critical air link between major cities. In Houston, Spirit’s new Monterrey service complements a robust international network providing Houstonian’s affordable nonstop flights to seven international destinations, along with 17 domestic destinations.
“We’re excited about growing our international service from Texas with new daily nonservice from Austin (AUS) and Houston (IAH) to Monterrey, Mexico,” said John Kirby, Spirit Airline’s Vice President of Network Planning. “Whether traveling for leisure or to visit friends and relatives, Spirit Airlines continues to provide our Guests with More Go.”
