Also, Memphis is a vibrant community with so much to explore in music, food, culture and more for visitors looking for a rich experience.

Pace Cooper, Chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority Board of Commissioners, said:

The arrival of Spirit Airlines at MEM provides our passengers with more low-cost travel options, and reflects our continued recovery from the pandemic. These three new daily routes indicate that Spirit sees Memphis as a promising market and we look forward to their continued growth at MEM.
