Spirit Airlines takes flight at the Sunport

Albuquerque, N.M. (KKOB) — Spirit Airlines officially entered the Albuquerque market Wednesday offering daily service to Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the Sunport’s first new domestic airline partner since 2016. Officials say Albuquerque’s growing popularity as a travel destination fostered ideal market conditions for the airline as it continues to grow its network in the Southwest. With the new service, New Mexicans are also just one stop away from Spirit’s destinations across North and South America, providing additional, convenient options for travelers. Spirit also showed their commitment to being a supportive member of the community by presenting a donation of $20,000 to local nonprofit Mandy’s Farm, an organization that helps individuals with developmental disabilities who live below the federal poverty line.
