Love them or hate them—they’re here to stay—and this week they are bringing even more new options to here and there. We’re talking about Spirit Airlines, and they’re upping the ante on their offerings to and from Minneapolis-St. Paul. In total there’s four new destinations that are scheduled to hit the skies at the beginning of November. Nonstop flights will start up on November 7, as the Twin Cities gain flights to spots like Los Angeles, Orlando, Tampa, and Phoenix. For now it looks like many of these flights are going to be seasonal affairs, as Sprit hopes to cash in on travelers looking to escape to warmer weather during the cold Minnesota winter. Just remember that your awesome airfare might not be as great as it looks, as Spirit is notorious for adding on fees, charges, and other junk to their low, low fares.
· Aer Lingus:
For those over in Ireland—or just passing through—there’s a new option from the friendly folks over at Aer Lingus. It’s not a long haul journey by any means, but it just might be what you’re looking for as part of a long weekend. As part of their Aer Lingus Regional group, the carrier is starting new nonstop flights between Dublin and Newcastle—that’s over in the United Kingdom. Things should be up and ready for your ticketing pleasure as of right now, but you’ll have to wait until heading off to the airport. The first flights are scheduled to start doing their thing on October 24, with two round trip options each and every day.
This might be an out-of-the way option for those looking to check out the scene down in Cuba, but nonetheless it certainly is available. Transaero is getting ready to start up some nonstop flights between Moscow-Domodedovo and Havana beginning on December 28. The flights will be a seasonal option—to escape the Russian chill—as things will head back and forth through the end of March of 2014. Boeing 767-300ERs will be in charge of the flying, and things should operate once per week. Russia and Cuba in the same week could be quite the adventure, so start thinking about how to swing this flight before December rolls around.
