Spirit Airlines proudly launched its latest named Airbus A321. In a private ceremony yesterday, the airplane was named “Spirit of Jamaica” in honor of its newest destination.
“We are thrilled to introduce our newest A321 and name it after Jamaica, our newest addition to our network,” said Barry Biffle, Chief Marketing Officer of Spirit Airlines. “We have received such an overwhelming response to our announcement to serve Jamaica that we are not only naming our airplane after the market but we’re also moving up our service date! We had planned to start our Kingston service in December but now we will start on November 10th. The ticket sales to and from Kingston have exceeded our expectations and we look forward to meeting the demand for low fare service as the leading low cost carrier to the Caribbean.”
