Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) has announced it is adding more humanitarian flights to expand efforts to bring Americans to the US from Colombia, Panama, Haiti, Aruba, the Dominican Republic and Honduras, the company said.
Over the past 13 days, the airline has organized flights to all six countries to pick up US citizens, residents and family members who have been in limbo since flight restrictions went into effect in mid-March.
The announcement comes after weeks of careful coordination with US embassies and local governments to obtain an exemption to those restrictions on international flights.
Spirit´s repatriation efforts have been made possible by US embassies in Colombia, Panama, Haiti, Aruba, the Dominican Republic, and Honduras. Guests needing to return home from an international destination should contact their country´s embassy in that location.
Spirit Airlines provides customizable travel options starting with an unbundled fare, allowing guests to pay only for the options they choose. Spirit operates more than 650 daily flights to 77 destinations in the US, Latin America and the Caribbean.
