New nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles starts today

Celebratory Fares Starting at $99 Each Way*

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (April 20, 2007) - Spirit Airlines today inaugurated nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles. Service will be offered three times weekly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

In addition to nonstop service from Fort Lauderdale, Spirit also offers connecting service from its domestic network. Spirit serves all routes with its fleet of Airbus aircraft, the youngest in the Americas.

To celebrate the new service, Spirit Airlines dedicated one of its A319 aircraft to the region by naming it "The Spirit of St. Maarten/St. Martin". The aircraft arrived on the island today to highlight the celebration.

"This is a very exciting day for us as St. Maarten marks our 14th Caribbean destination served," said Mark Kopczak, Senior Director of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. "We proudly dedicated one of our new Airbus aircraft to this island paradise to show our commitment to providing ultra low fares and reliable service to the region."

"It is said that air service is a lifeline to tourism growth for emerging islands like St. Maarten/St. Martin, and we are elated that Spirit Airlines is now operating three weekly year-round direct flights from Fort Lauderdale to St. Maarten," said St. Maarten Tourism Director, Regina LaBega.
