    MILWAUKEE (February 24, 2021) -- Spirit Airlines announced that Milwaukee is getting More Go on June 24, when the airline's yellow and black planes start taking off from Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE). 

    Spirit will start up daily nonstop flights to Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS) and MKE’s only nonstop flight to Los Angeles (LAX), bringing Spirit Signature Service, brand new Airbus jets and industry-leading low fares to the market.

    "We’ve had our eye on Milwaukee for a long time, and we’re excited to bring our unique value proposition to the Brew City,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. "It’s a win-win because our Badger State Guests will get to enjoy convenient non-stop service to popular destinations, and Spirit frequent fliers can experience Milwaukee’s great festivals and sports scene and enjoy fun outdoor activities just in time for summer."

    Spirit will be the only airline serving Los Angeles nonstop from Milwaukee, removing intermediate stops on the way and making quick trips between the two cities easier than ever. The airline continues to seize that kind of growth opportunity as demand for air travel increases. Earlier this month, the carrier announced an accelerated delivery schedule for new Airbus aircraft joining Spirit’s Fit Fleet™, which is among the youngest in the industry.
