Spirit Airlines is the largest US-based, low-cost carrier serving Colombia. It flies to seven Colombian cities from Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).

The carrier began flying to Colombia in 2008 with flights to Bogota El Dorado International Airport (BOG) and Cartagena de Indias Airport (CTG). Since then it has added Armenia El Edén International Airport (AXM), Barranquilla Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport (BAQ), Cali Alfonso Bonilla Aragón International Airport (CLO), Aeropuerto Internacional de Medellín (MDE), and Bucaramanga Palonegro International Airport (BGA) to its route map.
Spirit Charitable Foundation

The Spirit Charitable Foundation commemorated the carrier’s 15th anniversary in Bogota with a $100,000 donation to the Mano Amiga school in Zipaquirá. The nonprofit organization transforms the lives of children in need through education. The Spirit Charitable Foundation helped expand the Mano Amiga School in 2019. The Foundation also donated $15,000 to Club Deportivo Academia de Béisbol Hermanos Rentería in Cartagena earlier this year.

Ted Christie, President and CEO of Spirit Airlines, said:

Our Guests in Colombia have really embraced our low-fare, high-value model over the last 15 years, allowing us to offer even more options to travelers across the country and grow our service to seven Colombian cities. We’re excited to celebrate this milestone with our Guests and local partners and look forward to continue serving our Colombian Guests and the community through the Spirit Charitable Foundation.”

Anthony’s Take: Cartagena is a great city and there is a lot to check out in the rest of Colombia. It’s become a hugely popular destination and Spirit’s presence will only help that to grow. It’s nice to see the airline also giving back.
