Spirit Airlines has continued its international expansion from Houston’s George Bush International Airport with new routes into Central America.

From 6 September, the carrier will begin a three weekly service to Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport in El Salvador.

The next day, on 7 September, Spirit will begin non-stop flights between Houston and Guatemala City, Guatemala with year-round service running three times a week and will rise to four times weekly to La Aurora International Airport.

The new routes will complement Spirit’s existing international service between Houston and Cancun and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, as well as San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

These announcements come just weeks after the carrier announced it was launching nearly a dozen routes from Orlando, Florida to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Spirit Airlines’ vice president of network planning, Mark Kopczak said: “The addition of San Salvador and Guatemala City to our Houston destination list will provide our Guests more options to visit loved ones and experience all of what these amazing regions have to offer.

“Spirit continues to prove itself as a leader in travel to Latin America and the Caribbean by offering ultra-low fares allowing more to take advantage of our reliable service.”
