Puerto Rico has become easier to visit as Spirit Airlines today begins new nonstop service from Baltimore-Washington International Airport. to San Juan, the island’s capital and largest city.

The additional service strengthens Spirit’s position as a major carrier for Puerto Rico, as it currently serves both San Juan and Aguadilla. It was just back in October that Spirit launched nonstop service connecting Orlando, Fla. to Aguadilla.

“We are so proud to have been serving Puerto Rico since 2001, and we are thrilled to be expanding there again,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning. “We believe [this new route from] Baltimore will provide greater convenience to our guests with more low fare, nonstop flights.”

This latest service expansion comes with continued growth for Spirit Airlines. Recently the airline announced it is starting service in Jacksonville, Fla. and Austin, Texas, which will also connect to Baltimore/Washington, DC, Detroit, Chicago and Fort Lauderdale.
