Ultra low fare carrier Spirit Airlines has announced plans to to begin service from Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport in June. The 8th-largest U.S. carrier is headquartered in Miramar (metro Miami), Florida, operating a fleet of Airbus aircraft more than 500 times daily to 78 destinations in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America.
Spirit will offer daily non-stops to Orlando (MCO) and Las Vegas (LAS) in competition with Southwest and Frontier Airlines, and will fly the only non-stop from MKE to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Its unique “A La Smarte’ service features super low airfares, with customers able to purchase options such as checked bags, advance seat assignments and inflight refreshments.
Flights from Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP) began several years ago with current non-stop destinations including Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Denver, Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Myrtle Beach, New Orleans, Orlando, Phoenix, and Tampa/St. Petersburg (TPA).
After a 35-year travel industry career, the time has come to kick back and relax. Well, not exactly, but it is time to travel without a business schedule dictating where and when. Over the years I've traveled extensively by air for work, both domestically and internationally. I've been to some incredibly exciting and beautiful destinations, and some others, not so much. So now it's my turn (and hopefully yours), to explore the world at a more leisurely pace. Whether you want to discover the U.S. or another continent, the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport is a great starting point. And that's what this blog is all about. I'm not here to assist the rich and famous in figuring out how to best earn and utilize their millions of airline miles and hotel points. Instead, my focus will be on the average Joe and Josephine. Hard-working people (like you!) who have saved up over time for their once or twice a year escape from reality. So if you're contemplating a getaway from MSP or the Upper Midwest via the Twin Cities, you've come to the right place. Happy trails!
