San Jose Airport Gets the Spirit

Discount carrier Spirit Airlines has launched new, nonstop service from its seventh California airport this month at San José Mineta International Airport (SJC). The launch includes two daily flights to Las Vegas (LAS) and daily flights to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and San Diego (SAN). It also provides an easy gateway for visitors to fly to the Southern Bay Area.

In celebration of the service launch, Spirit’s new SJC Guests can sign up for the Free Spirit loyalty program and enjoy the limited-time Double Points promotion for travel to/from SJC. To qualify, members must book by July 7, 2023 at 11:59PM ET and travel by September 30, 2023. Free Spirit costs nothing to join and offers the fastest way to earn rewards and status.

“We can’t wait to welcome our Silicon Valley Guests onboard one of the youngest fleets in the industry and fly them to these three great destinations, as well as give back to the community through the Spirit Charitable Foundation,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “San José has so much to offer travelers and our affordable fares will make it easier for our Guests to discover the Bay Area.”
