Spirit Airlines plans to launch new scheduled services from the Mexican resort destinations of Los Cabos and Cancun, subject to receiving government approvals.
From November 8, Spirit Airlines will operate daily non-stop service between Los Cabos International Airport (serving Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo) and San Diego, with connecting service to Dallas/Fort Worth.
Spirit will begin three-times-weekly non-stop service between Cancun and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on April 25, 2013, with service increasing to daily on June 13.
The carrier will also launch four-times-weekly non-stop flights between Los Cabos and Dallas/Fort Worth on June 13, 2013.
“We’re looking forward to this new service between San Diego and Los Cabos,” says Thella Bowens, President and CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. “There is a strong affinity between San Diego and Mexico and this new service will strengthen the relationships of the two countries.”
Spirit Airlines’ schedule for its Dallas/Fort Worth-San Diego-Los Cabos service will see flight NK107 leave Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) at 8:30 a.m. daily for San Diego. After arriving at San Diego International Airport (SAN), the flight will then depart SAN at 10:10 a.m. and land at Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) at 1:15 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, flight NK108 will push back from the gate at SJD at 2:15 p.m. and arrive at SAN at 3:15 p.m. local time. The flight will then leave SAN for DFW, where it is timed to arrive at 9:35 p.m., local time.

In the other direction, flight NK159 is timed to leave CUN at 6:15 p.m. in order to reach DFW at 8:55 p.m.
