The airline currently serves Asheville and Greensboro and will begin serving Raleigh-Durham on May 2.
“The North Carolina economy continues to thrive, and we are thrilled to add the state’s largest city, Charlotte, to our route network,” said John Kirby, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning. “We are excited to offer our guests a chance to experience all of what The Queen City has to offer. Whether you are a foodie, a craft brew enthusiast, or a stock car racing fan, Charlotte offers great restaurants, breweries, and is the home of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Of course, we are equally happy to introduce our new Charlotte-area Guests to our substantial and growing list of domestic and international destinations.”
