Spirit Airlines is relocating its operations at Phoenix, Arizona’s largest city, from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport ‒ the city’s main international airport.

Spirit Airlines says it is reaching out to customers currently holding reservations for flights to and from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, in order to rebook them.

The carrier will offer daily non-stop service between PHX and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) from October 24.

On June 20, 2013, at the Paris Air Show, Spirit Airlines announced a new order for 20 Airbus A321 jets and revealed it had changed previously placed orders for 10 A320s to specify A321s instead. All 30 of Spirit's A321s, to be delivered between 2015 and 2018, feature Sharklet wing-tip devices and will be the first A320-family jets in North America to feature Airbus' Space-Flex cabin option, which optimizes use of the available space at the very back of the aircraft
