Spirit Airlines, the ultra-low-cost carrier known for a no-frills experience is launching several new routes from Boston (BOS) as well as expanding service on several existing routes to daily or year-round. This will nearly double the year-round flights Spirit offers out of New England’s largest city.
Let’s take a look at all the details!
Spirit Airlines‘ expansion out of Boston will include 2 types of offerings:
- New flights that haven’t existed before
- Increasing the frequency of select existing routes
Here are the routes:

It’s interesting that a number of these routes are in direct competition with other airlines. While there are some routes in this expansion that aren’t offered by other carriers, many will see the low-cost carrier compete against much larger airlines:
- Boston to Atlanta, served by Delta Air Lines
- Boston to Charlotte, served by American Airlines
- Boston to Dallas, served by American Airlines
- Boston to Houston, served by United Airlines
- Boston to Los Angeles, served by United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, and JetBlue
- Boston to Miami, served by American Airlines
- Boston to Orlando, served by Delta Air Lines and JetBlue
- Boston to Phoenix, served by American Airlines
While these larger carriers will inevitably not like Spirit offering a similar route, this should be good news for flyers. Since Spirit’s fares are so cheap, it could drive down the cost of these flights on other airlines as well. Not to mention the fact that these frequencies will add additional departures throughout the day which could be beneficial for travelers in terms of timing.Hot Tip:
Many of these flights are over 3 hours, so you might want to consider purchasing Spirit’s Big Front Seat product, which is a first-class style seat without the “soft” amenities.
These new routes will add more cost-effective options for New England flyers. Most of these flights will compete with other airlines, which should be great for pricing and scheduling, giving flyers more choices from Boston.
