Spirit Airlines, the ultra-low-cost American airline carrier headquartered in Florida, just announced they will be resuming service to Puerto Rico.

The destination of Ponce is Spirit’s 14th airport across the Caribbean this summer, returning back to Puerto Rico for the first time since September 2008. The flight will be from Orlando to Ponce and they will face competition with JetBlue, which has operated from Orlando since May 2007.

Operating one time a day, the 1,179-mile flight will be operated using a 145-seat A319 for the rest of the year. The first round-trip flight was in an A320neo. 

While the timing of flights will change on various occasions, the setup currently shows:

  • Spirit Orlando-Ponce: NK3028, 15:50-19:38
  • Spirit Ponce-Orlando: NK3029, 20:40-22:44
  • And for mid-July it shows 
  • Orlando-Ponce: NK3028, 23:30-02:25+1 
  • Ponce-Orlando: NK3029, 03:20-06:15

Flying out of Spirit’s second-busiest airport – about 60/day – in Orlando, they are the second-largest airline, behind Southwest. 

Their network of routes spans 54 routes this summer with Ponce being one of 15 destinations that Spirit serves in the Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Mexico from Orlando.
