Spirit Airlines to offer flights to New Orleans, Oakland, San Diego, Seattle at BWI Airport

Spirit Airlines will fly to New Orleans, San Diego, Oakland and Seattle from BWI Airport starting in May.

Spirit Airlines will offer year-round nonstop flights to New Orleans and seasonal service to Oakland, San Diego and Seattle from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the Florida-based airline announced Tuesday.

The three seasonal flights will operate from May 25 to Sept. 7. The cut-rate airline, which moved its regional operation to BWI five years ago, has grown from serving two destinations at the airport to serving 18.

The first nonstop, one-way trip available was listed Tuesday for $203.19 on Spirit.com. Nonstop, one-way flights to San Diego and Oakland were both listed for $213.19.

The May 25 nonstop, one-way flight to New Orleans costs $148.19.

"We're excited to expand our growing network with more flight options between some of the country's most desired destinations," Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines' vice president of network planning, said in a statement. "These new nonstop flights, combined with our ultra-low fares, will give many more customers the chance to check off their travel bucket lists with more money saved to spend making memories on vacation."
