AUSTIN, Texas — You can now fly directly to northeast Mexico from Austin as Spirit Airlines launched a new daily, nonstop service on Thursday, Oct. 6.
Travelers can fly straight to Monterrey International Airport in the state capital of Nuevo León from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, offering a new route for those looking to explore Mexico or visit family and friends.
The service to Monterrey also launched on Oct. 6 from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
“It’s exciting to launch service in Monterrey with a milestone route from Austin that provides critical connectivity and a nonstop route from Houston that expands our extensive international service at IAH,” said John Kirby, vice president of network planning for Sprit Airlines. “Monterrey attracts vacationers, and family and friends all year long and is a great addition for our guests looking for high-value options to visit Mexico’s third-largest city.”
The new service to Monterrey is Spirit's only inland Mexican destination and the fourth Mexican airport the airline serves.
AUS celebrated the new service launching on Thursday by giving out Spirit and Monterrey merchandise at Gate 11.
