Spirit Airlines

Spirit Airlines have come up with an innovative approach to air travel: they offer travelers low base fares on all flights, with the option of paying extra for any extra services they might like to add. With service to many major centers across the continental United States, as well as flights to Latin America and the Caribbean, they provide a range of options to suit a diverse range of travelers.

If you plan to travel with your pet, Spirit will accept small dogs, cats, and household birds* for in-cabin transportation only on flights within the continental United States. They will not accept animals as either checked baggage or as manifest cargo at any time, and pets are not permitted on any of their international flights.
