Spirit Airlines to Resume Colombia Nonstop Flights on Sept. 21
Spirit will be the first airline to enter Colombia on an international commercial flight since borders were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
On Saturday Sept. 21, the Miramar-based airline restarts direct travel from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport with a flight to Cartagena. Spirit Airlines will restart flights from Bogota, Medellin and Cali to Fort Lauderdale on Sept. 21.
Since the close of Colombia’s borders due to COVID-19, Spirit Airlines has made nearly 200 flights since April that repatriated more than 25,000 people between the United States and nine countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, Colombia being the main contributor to this mission, the airline said.
Spirit is maintaining security protocols that includes requiring all passengers and team members to use fabric covers for the face.
Like other airlines, Spirit has expanded aircraft cleanup protocols between each flight and uses two EPA-registered nebulization treatments, the company said.
