Spirit Nixes Commissions

As of Thursday, Spirit Airlines has discontinued its 5 percent agent commission for bookings made through its web site. A spokesperson for the airline e-mailed Travel Agent to say the move, which affects agents in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, is part of Spirit's "continued effort to lower fares and increase flexibility." However, the carrier also has removed revenue and segment minimums for discounted agent travel. All valid ARC/IATA-accredited agencies can call 800-246-7688 or visit [www.spiritair.com].
