Last month, I wrote about Spirit’s plans to postpone the launch of its Tulum service and to pull out of Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) completely. Now, the low-cost carrier has dropped 12 other routes from its schedule this summer. Airlines are constantly tweaking their route networks and both Spirit and Frontier have made tons of changes in recent weeks.

Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)

Spirit will drop the following four routes:

  • Harry Reid Las Vegas International Airport (LAS)
  • Miami International Airport (MIA)
  • Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW)
  • Tampa International Airport (TPA)


Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE)

Cleveland will see three routes dropped. These include:

  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)
  • Harry Reid Las Vegas International Airport (LAS)
  • Miami International Airport (MIA)

Atlanta Beltline

Other Routes

In addition to the cuts to Boston and Cleveland, Spirit is dropping these four routes:

  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to/from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW)
  • Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to/from Oakland International Airport (OAK)
  • Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) to/from Miami International Airport (MIA)
  • Orlando International Airport (MCO) to/from Raleigh–Durham International Airport (RDU)

Anthony’s Take: Airlines constantly make changes to their route networks. When one is added another falls off the schedule. A lot of routes seem to come and go and some of these could be back in the future.
