Thought Spirit Air Was Going To Expand?

Wed Apr 28, 2004 9:03 am

I thought that when Spirit Airlines got that $125 million from the VC, I thought they were going to buy planes and expand? Any news on possible destinations?

They are updating their fleet at this point I think.

They are planning on getting 30 to 35 Airbus planes (a mixture of A321s and A319s... but no A320s  Confused ) to eventually replace their MD-80s.

Spirit is also planning on expanding their operations at ACY. In anticipation of that, SJTA (South Jersey Transportation Authority), the agency that runs ACY, has a terminal expansion plan (up to 18 gates) in their latest Airport Layout Plan.

Maybe by 2010, the terminal along with Spirit's new fleet will become a reality.
