Spirit Airlines has launched daily nonstop routes from Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Baltimore - Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) to Cancun International Airport. These flights mark Spirit’s first international destinations from each city.

“This is an exciting milestone for our network,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines’ vice president of network planning. “Cancun is one of our most-requested destinations, so it’s only fitting it has become our first international destination from Chicago and Baltimore/Washington.

“We look forward to bringing more service to Cancun and other international destinations in the months ahead.”

Spirit Airlines currently operates daily service to Cancun from Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale and Houston. The two new routes brings Spirit’s nonstop service to Cancun to six flights daily, one daily from each of the six U.S cities it serves.

Flights from BWI and O’Hare began November 9. Spirit will fly one daily round-trip from each city.

Spirit will, however, face significant competition on the new routes. American, Frontier and United all fly non-stop from Chicago O’Hare to Cancun while Southwest flies non-stop from Chicago Midway. From BWI, Spirit will go head-to-head against Southwest and Delta (seasonal, Saturday only) on its route to Cancun.
