Spirit Airlines has announced new nonstop service connecting Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY).
Beginning April 13, 2018, Spirit will operate 4 flights per week between the two popular vacation destinations.
“Spirit is proud of its strong history at Atlantic City International Airport, and we’re very excited to bring more ultra-low fares to the market,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning.
“With this new service to New Orleans, we know more travelers will take advantage of New Jersey’s most convenient airport, whether it’s a spontaneous trip with friends or the ultimate family vacation.”
Spirit Airlines has been providing nonstop flights and low fares from Southern New Jersey for more than 27 years at Atlantic City International Airport. From Atlantic City, Spirit currently operates 10 flights per day to 6 cities, including Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Tampa, and West Palm Beach. On April 12, 2018, Spirit will also resume its daily seasonal service to Atlanta.
“We are excited Spirit Airlines is adding nonstop service between Atlantic City and New Orleans, a premier destination known for its culture, cuisine, jazz music, and Mardi Gras,” said Airport Director, Tim Kroll.
“This year-round route is another result of the strong partnership between Spirit Airlines and the Atlantic City International Airport. Together, we are dedicated to promoting the convenience of our facility.”
In New Orleans, Spirit will begin seasonal nonstop service from Columbus, OH, beginning on March 22, 2018. Spirit also recently started service to New Orleans from Boston, Newark/New York, Tampa and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Spirit now operates 19 daily flights from New Orleans to 17 destinations.
“Spirit has been an outstanding partner to MSY, and we appreciate their confidence in the New Orleans market to launch their 17th nonstop route from our city,” said Kevin Dolliole, Director of Aviation for the New Orleans Aviation Board.
“Atlantic City has been unserved from MSY, and with today’s announcement, ACY marks our 57th nonstop destination. It will now be easier than ever for New Jersey travelers to experience the unique culture of New Orleans with Spirit’s ultra-low fares.”
