We’re always looking for travel options that fit into a “Shoestring” budget, and Spirit Airlines‘ new flights out of Akron-Canton airport are an intriguing option. We’re excited to share about their new flights, and to partner with them for a fantastic giveaway!
Beginning November 10, 2017, Spirit Airlines will have nonstop flights to/from Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, and Tampa, Florida at ultra-low fares. In April 2017, they will add service to Las Vegas and Myrtle Beach.
Spirit is unique because they begin with an “ultra-low” base fare. This fare gets you and a personal item from point A to point B. Beyond that, you choose what options you want, including drinks, baggage, etc. Because their planes are some of the newest ones flying, they are safe and fuel-efficient. They also include more seats per plane, because having more passengers per flight allows them to have lower fares. This is “no-frills” flying–the seats don’t recline, and there’s not a ton of extra elbow room, but it allows you the option to get somewhere quickly and efficiently at a good price.
The launch of these flights is fantastic timing for Ohioans to escape the winter blahs and get away to sunny Florida. The flights to the Orlando area would also be a great way to keep a Disney World trip budget more reasonable for your family. With several flights to “snow bird” destinations, these would make reasonably-priced flights for visiting relatives as well, either flying home to visit Ohio for the holidays, or heading south to visit the grandparents!
Now here’s the part I’m really excited to share with you…because we’re a Northeast Ohio blog, Spirit is partnering with us to give a lucky local reader an awesome prize package to celebrate the beginning of their service from Akron-Canton Airport. The winner will receive a kit complete with 10,000 free Spirit miles. It also includes a bag the perfect size for a carry on, a water bottle, a T-shirt – everything you need to be a seamless Spirit traveler. 10,000 Spirit miles is enough for a free standard one-way plane ticket to most North American destinations from Akron-Canton, or if you’re a Spirit Mastercard holder and you fly at an off-peak time, it could be worth as much as two round-trip tickets! Just follow the instructions in the widget below to enter, and we’ll announce the lucky winner soon. Good luck to all our Northeast Ohio Sisters and Misters–can’t wait to hear all about your travels!
