For the second time in 24 hours, an airline has announced its arrival at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines announced Tuesday that it will start twice-daily nonstop service on Sept. 6 from BWI to Fort Lauderdale and daily nonstop service to Dallas/Fort Worth. The flights from BWI start at $77 round-trip to Fort Lauderdale and $88 round-trip to Dallas.
Spirit is relocating its operations from Washington’s Reagan National Airport to become the ninth domestic carrier to serve BWI. Southwest and AirTran are responsible for about 70 percent of the airport’s traffic.
Florida-based Spirit will fly 178-seat Airbus A320 planes out of BWI’s Concourse C. Passengers will be able to connect to flights to Central and South America, Mexico and the Caribbean.
On Monday night, Condor Airlines began its seasonal service to Frankfurt, Germany.
The airline will have flights on Mondays and Thursdays, providing a link to destinations in Europe, Asia and Africa. The Germany-based carrier is the third-largest airline in Germany. The BWI flights will be operated with 270-seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft offering three classes of service — Comfort (business), Premium Economy and Economy.
Condor is the fourth international carrier to serve BWI.
