MIRAMAR, Fla., May 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spirit Airlines celebrated its growing Fit Fleet with a huge surprise for customers travelling on three different flights today. Spirit’s new Airbus A321 took flight this morning as the airline’s 100th aircraft, joining the youngest, most fuel-efficient fleet in the U.S. In honor of the big addition, Spirit gave away $100 future flight credits, new plane air fresheners and inflight concerts to more than 600 lucky customers heading from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando, Orlando to Atlantic City, and Atlantic City to Fort Lauderdale.

Dubbed NK 675, Spirit’s snazzy yellow 100th plane is 44.5 meters long with a max take-off weight of 89 tons. As part of the celebration around its first flight, Spirit also hooked up customers with some awesome inflight music to complement the new plane smell. The music continued as customers boarded and deplaned at all three different airports, showcasing an artist from Spirit’s new “Give & Go” program. Give & Go supports up and coming musical artists with flights to gigs and distribution of their music to our customers in exchange for pop up concerts and fun inflight experiences. We will be expanding to include other creative types like photographers and filmmakers, giving them a chance to trade their talent for travel—giving everyone “More Go”.
