Spirit Airlines continues to expand outside its Fort Lauderdale base, announcing 30 July new flights from Phoenix in Arizona.

On 23 October, the Miramar, Florida-based low-cost carrier will relocate its Phoenix operation from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport to area's major international airport, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, says the airline in a release.

The following day the airline will launch one daily flight from Sky Harbor to Dallas/Fort Worth International airport.

On 7 November, the airline will launch a seasonal daily flight between Phoenix and both Denver International airport and Chicago-O'Hare International airport.

Those flights will operate through 30 April, 2014, according to Spirit.

"Phoenix Sky Harbor airport fits Spirit's growth strategy by continuing to take customers to the big cities they want to go to at an affordable price," says Spirit's senior director of network planning Mark Kopczak in a release.
