Operating At Least Three Flights To Hurricane-Devastated
Spirit Airlines Thursday began
rescues flight to and from Cancun, Mexico.
The airline said in a statement to Aero-news that it's working
closely with the Mexican Government and Cancun Airport officials in
order to take Spirit Airlines' customers out of the resort city
pummeled by Hurricane Wilma.
The first flight took off at 1035 from Fort Lauderdale, with
supplies and water, bound for Cancun to pick up the first 150
customers. Once in Fort Lauderdale, customers will continue on to
their destination through Spirit's Fort Lauderdale hub. Spirit said
it would operate two more rescue flights on Friday.
Spirit is planning to resume scheduled service to Cancun as
early as Saturday.
