PHILLY'S airport is flying high.
City officials yesterday announced that Spirit Airlines, a budget carrier, will soon offer flights from Philadelphia International Airport to Dallas/Fort Worth. Spirit is the third new airline to add Philly routes in the past six months, following similar announcements from Virgin America and Alaska Airlines.
"We have not had new airlines in eight years and now we have three," said Deputy Mayor for Transportation and Utilities Rina Cutler. "We're very excited."
