Does Spirit Really Offer the Cheapest Flights?

Spirit Airlines is known as the cheapest provider of flights in the country, but is it really?  The price of the ticket pays for only the flight and the airline charges for everything else, but despite this, the ticket prices are so low that it is still a really good deal.  Plus, the airline is rapidly expanding its services, which once were mostly aimed at the east coast.  It is beginning to serve more and more destinations that are served by the bigger carriers.


The goal behind the cheap fares of Spirit is to help those people travel who cannot afford the prices of the bigger airlines.  An example of the prices they offer is the one-way price of $38.79 from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Chicago O’Hare.  Their prices are often half of what the bigger carriers charge.  Spirit president and CEO, Ben Baldanza, says whenever they add a new market, they always try to price it lower.  It may never be a go-to airline, but it makes travel possible for many who would otherwise not have the option.
