Spirit Airlines is offering a new,direct flight between Fort Lauderdale and Haiti’s second largest city.
The South Florida airline’s newest destination to Cap-Haitien is expected to connect thousands with the island nation.
The first-of-its-path flight will take off from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport next Thursday morning.
Before this new service, there was only one flight from South Florida to the northern tip of Haiti -- requiring an hours-long bus ride to reach Cap-Haitien.
With the airline landing in the market, it’s expected to bring more competition and opportunities.
Spirit Airlines is going to be offering flights to Cap-Haitien three times a week, with one-way tickets costing less than $100.
