Spirit Airlines plans to alter Florida service

Spirit Airlines said Wednesday it will end nonstop flights from Piedmont Triad International Airport to Tampa and Four Lauderdale, Fla., on Nov. 14.

Last September, Spirit began three weekly flights to Orlando International Airport and two weekly flights to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Tampa International Airport.

Spirit will offer daily nonstop service to Orlando beginning Nov. 14.

Travelers can buy tickets on Spirit to Fort Lauderdale with a connection through Orlando.

By comparison, fellow low-fare career Allegiant operates out of St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport to the Tampa market, and Orlando-Sanford International Airport.
