SACRAMENTO – Spirit Airlines has announced it will officially begin its inaugural service at Sacramento International Airport with daily year-round, nonstop service between Sacramento (SMF) and Las Vegas (LAS) beginning June 20, 2019. Spirit will join Frontier and Southwest to offer nonstop service to LAS from SMF, potentially supporting more competitive fares.

Spirit Airlines recently was named Air Transport World’s Value Airline of the Year by Air Transport World (ATW), part of the Aviation Week Network. Spirit credits the award to their industry-leading on-time and baggage delivery performance, the installation of high-speed Wi-Fi to its entire fleet, and the company’s ability to provide low fares, while also investing in the Guest experience.

“SMF is thrilled to welcome Spirit Airlines to serve our community,” stated Cindy Nichol,

Sacramento County Department of Airports Director. “Spirit’s low airfares will stimulate traffic for Sacramento passengers heading to Vegas for leisure, business and conventions. We’re pleased to provide greater choice to our travelers, and Spirit complements our existing airlines serving SMF.

“Spirit Airlines provides our customers with a greater opportunity to find competitively priced nonstops to Las Vegas, a destination in high demand from Sacramento for both business and leisure travelers,” say Mark Haneke, Air Service Development Manager for the Sacramento County Department of Airports. “This new service will also offer Sacramento travelers easy connections to and from Columbus, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.”
