MILWAUKEE — Spirit Airlines announced that it will be expanding to the Milwaukee International Mitchell Airport with nonstop flights to popular destinations.

Beginning June 24, Spirit will have direct flights from Milwaukee to Orlando, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

"We've had our eye on Milwaukee for a long time, and we're excited to bring our unique value proposition to the Brew City," said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. "It's a win-win because our Badger State Guests will get to enjoy convenient nonstop service to popular destinations, and Spirit frequent fliers can experience Milwaukee's great festivals and sports scene and enjoy fun outdoor activities just in time for summer."

Spirit will be the only airline serving nonstop flights to Los Angeles from Milwaukee.

According to Spirit, the addition of these nonstop cities will make for easier connections to additional destinations including the Caribbean and Latin America.

"Milwaukee has some of the best weather in the U.S. during the summer, and these new routes make it easy for visitors to experience Wisconsin's world-class golf courses, breweries, and lakefront," Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley said. "Attracting a new airline is a major accomplishment, and I commend the entire Airport team for bringing Spirit Airlines to MKE, which will create jobs and bring more economic impact to Milwaukee County."
