Spirit Airlines today announced its expansion into international service, with daily flights between Los Angeles International Airport and Los Cabos International Airport starting May 5, and nonstop flights to Puerto Vallarta’s Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport starting July 1.

Spirit will also offer the only nonstop flights from LAX to Columbus, Milwaukee, LaGuardia and Louisville, as well as a new nonstop flight to St. Louis, substantially expanding the airline’s flight offerings in Southern California.

“Our new nonstop routes to Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta mark our first-ever international service out of LAX and are great complements to our beyond continental 48 route map which now serves 30 destinations in Latin American and the Caribbean,” said John Kirby, vice president of network planning at Spirit Airlines.


“In addition, our convenient new nonstop domestic flights, along with our low competitive fares, create even more great getaway options for our guests in the L.A. Basin.” Justin Erbacci, CEO of Los Angeles World Airports, welcomed the news.

“With travel beginning to rebound, we are excited that Spirit Airlines is adding international service to Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta, as well as expanding domestic service from Los Angeles International Airport,” he said. “LAX is the West Coast gateway to the world and these new nonstop destinations will provide new options for travelers who are ready to fly again.”

In 1999, Spirit launched its service in California with flights out of LAX, and later grew to serve Sacramento, Oakland and San Diego. Recently, the low-fare carrier added service to Burbank and Orange County.
