Ultra-low-cost carrier Spirt Airlines will start to fly out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport next March, the first new national carrier at the airport since Virgin America in 2008.
“We are a rapidly growing carrier … as we continue to grow, we’re going into new places where we can provide a new option, a low-priced option,” Mark Kopczak, vice president of network planning at Spirit said in an interview. “We are complementary to the existing services that are already at Sea-Tac Airport.”
