New seasonal service to New Orleans and Myrtle Beach will start on March 22, providing Columbus with a total of seven new routes to several popular vacation spots.

“We are excited to bring our ultra-low fares to Columbus just in time for spring break, connecting central Ohio to some of Spirit’s top vacation destinations,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines’ vice president of network planning in a news release. “With more daily, nonstop flight options to Florida and Las Vegas this winter, we know our guests will be able to save tons of money on air travel, and instead spend those savings on souvenirs, attractions and making memories on vacation.”
