Your Simple Guide to the Way We Fly.

We’re different – and everyone knows it. But not many know why. Watch this video to see how we’re changing air travel. Then keep scrolling to learn how to fly Spirit.


The 4 Reasons Why We’re Different

  • Ultra-Low Fares

    Home of the



    Our fares are fully unbundled. No “free” bag. No “free” drink. Other airlines bake those options right into their ticket price. We don’t. A ticket with us gets you and a personal item from A to B.

  • Options

    We call it



    We believe in paying only for what you use, not what you don’t. Control your options and never pay for someone else’s “free” bags.

  • Fresh Planes

    We have a



    We have one of the youngest fleets flying. We’re safe. We’re fuel-efficient, and that saves you money.

  • Cozy Seating

    We are



    We add more seats to our planes because when we fly with more people, the cost per person goes down. Our seats are simple: they don’t recline, so you don’t wind up with someone’s head in your lap. And we don’t have Wi-Fi or video, so be sure to download a movie to your phone or tablet. A little cozier seating and fewer expensive extras mean lower fares for you.

This is How You Bare Fare

Let Jack & Theresa show you how to pack a personal item in all the right ways.

Pro Tips

  • Buy Bags Early

    Buy Bags Early

    If you know you’re going to need a checked bag or carry-on, buy it early and online to save major moola. It costs time and resources to process at the airport, which means it costs you more money.

  • Personal Item Included

    Personal Item Included

    One personal item is included in the Bare Fare. We’re talking something like a small backpack - one that can fit entirely in the smaller sizer box (16” x 14” x 12”). Another personal item or anything larger like a standard carry-on or checked bag is a little extra.

  • We’re Light on Legroom

    We’re Light on Legroom

    We’re a cozy airline. We add extra seats to our planes so we can fly with more people. This lowers ticket prices for everyone, just like a carpool.

  • Get the Big Front Seat

    Get the Big Front Seat

    For a little extra cash you can secure the Big Front Seat. No middle seat, more space, extra legroom–you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.

  • Print Your Pass @ Home

    Print Your Pass @ Home

    Have a printer? Save yourself some money and print your boarding pass at home. It costs time and resources to print it at the airport, which means it costs you $10.

  • Refreshments for Purchase

    Refreshments for Purchase

    Your Bare Fare doesn’t include refreshments - even water - because it costs money to stock ’em and gas to carry ’em. We have snacks and drinks for sale if you need a little somethin’.

  • Travel Insurance is Available

    Travel Insurance is Available

    Trying to resell your ticket raises fares for everyone, so we don’t give refunds if your plans change. Insurance is available to protect you from the unexpected.
