In addition to Niagara Falls being a tourist destination in itself, the Niagara Falls International Airport is also conveniently located near Buffalo, New York, and just across the border from Toronto, Canada, offering upstate New Yorkers and Canadians easy access to ultra low fares throughout the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America.
  • Latrobe, PA (serves greater Pittsburgh area) – four weekly non-stops starting February 12, 2011. Located in southwestern Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh.

In addition to the non-stop service, the new schedule provides two daily one-stop same aircraft options for customers traveling between Fort Lauderdale and Las Vegas.

“I commend Spirit Airlines for its continued commitment to our airport and to South Florida. By adding these new destinations it gives our passengers more ultra low fare choices,” said Kent George, Director of Aviation, Broward County Aviation Department. “Thank you for helping make FLL the fastest growing airport in Florida and the fourth fastest in the country.”

“Every time Spirit adds service, it adds a smile to Fort Lauderdale,” said Nicki E.
