Rapidly growing Spirit Airlines is expanding to Nashville, joining a long list of airlines drawn to the city’s economic boom and tourism surge.
The discount carrier with the bright yellow planes plans to begin daily nonstop service between Nashville International Airport and six cities this fall, officials announced Monday.
The cities are Baltimore, Las Vegas, New Orleans and three in Florida: Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa.
All but the Tampa flights begin on Oct. 10. Tampa service begins Nov. 5. Spirit will offer one daily flight in each direction on the new routes.
