Spirit To Announce New Int'l Destination On Wed.

Sat Aug 21, 2004 10:19 pm

What a week for Ft. Lauderdale, and it is only getting better. The Miami Herald has confirmed that Spirit Airlines will announce a new international destination from FLL this coming Wednesday. From what I have heard, it will be San Jose, Costa Rica. And as if that wasn't enough, American Airlines is rumouredly planning a response to US Airways' new FLL mini-hub...

what a great week to live in Fort Lauderdale!

One question...
gate space is currently at a premium...how will airlines like NK or AA get the additional gates they need (also B6, but thats not the issue at hand!). I'd say that if DL doesn't start new service soon, they might be under some pressure from a few airlines for gates D2 D3 and D4 which are barely used! (D4 will serve 2 Midwest flights plus 1 DL scheduled flight this winter)
NEXT FLIGHT: FLL-ATL-HPN on FL
