Spirit Airlines flies from Baltimore/Washington and Chicago to Cancun

Top-notch resorts, crystal blue waters and beautiful beaches are just a few of the things that put Cancun on the map as the ultimate getaway destination. Spirit Airlines will begin nonstop service from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD) to Cancun International Airport (CUN) beginning on November 9, 2017.

“We are delighted to deliver this nonstop service to one of the most requested destinations in our network,” said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. “These new flights expand our presence in Cancun and bring our first international routes to Baltimore/Washington and Chicago.”

Spirit Airlines currently operates daily service to Cancun from Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale and Houston. The addition of Baltimore/Washington and Chicago brings Spirit’s nonstop service to Cancun to six flights daily.

“We welcome the announcement that Spirit Airlines will bring new international flight options and more ultra-low fares for our travelers,” said Ricky Smith, Chief Executive Officer for BWI Marshall Airport. “This service boosts the travel value for our passengers, while adding to the growth and success here at BWI Marshall Airport.”

“The addition of international flight options is always great news for Chicago and O’Hare travelers because of the economic impact it creates, not to mention the boost in opportunities for business and tourism for our city,” said Ginger S. Evans, Commissioner, Chicago Department of Aviation. “I want to thank Spirit Airlines for their commitment to service at our global gateway. More flights from Chicago to this popular destination will bring healthy competition and better options for our customers.”

Nonstop flights from Baltimore and Chicago to Cancun are subject to foreign government approval.
