Spirit Airlines has just announced it will add two nonstop routes at Tampa International Airport to the popular North Carolina destinations Greensboro and Asheville. Both flights will begin today, September 6, 2018, and operate year-round, two to three times per week depending on the season.
With the addition of the Greensboro and Asheville flights, TPA will now have 86 total nonstop routes, 69 which are domestic. Spirit is TPA’s second-fastest growing airline, having added eight of its 21 nonstop routes in the last year, including the recently announced service between Tampa to Philadelphia on Dec. 14. Among some of Spirit’s other cities served from Tampa are the recent service additions of Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Columbus and Akron/Canton, as well as to Detroit, Chicago, Atlantic City and other big-city routes.
Tampa International currently offers nonstop service to the North Carolina markets of Raleigh/Durham and Charlotte. The new flights to Greensboro and Asheville are expected to be popular with both business and leisure travelers.
