This Miramar, FL-based low-cost carrier will introduce year-round daily nonstop flights from Nashville International Airport to Baltimore/Washington, Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Orlando. These operations are set to be launched on Oct 10, 2019.

Additionally, the carrier will launch service to Tampa from Nashville beginning Nov 5. This non-stop service will also operate daily throughout the year.

Spirit’s expansion into the rapidly growing city of Nashville should attract substantial traffic on the routes and in turn, boost its top line.
