Spirit Airlines Nonstop Service from Indy to Newark Takes Off Today

Flight is first-ever, ultra-low-cost flight from Indy to Northern New Jersey/New York City

INDIANAPOLIS (June 22, 2022) – The Spirit Airlines first-ever ultra-low-cost nonstop flight from the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) to the Newark/New York City metro area takes off today.

The new nonstop, year-round flight will depart this evening and operate daily out of Indy.

Newark airport combines with LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports in the New York City metropolitan area to make up the largest airport system in the United States.

The New York/Newark area is a major destination, well known for tourist attractions along with art, music, shopping, sports, history, and other sightseeing.

“Our airlines are responding to the community’s pent-up demand for leisure travel,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “We’re encouraged by Spirit’s entry into the Newark/New York City metro area from Indianapolis, giving Hoosiers more options to get there.”

The new Spirit nonstop flight will provide a great opportunity for Hoosiers who have moved to the NYC/Newark area to return home and visit Indy family, enjoy sporting events, and other fun activities at an ultra-low-cost price.

“It’s great to provide our Guests with convenient and affordable nonstop flights between Indy and Newark to visit friends and family in Northern New Jersey or use it as a gateway to the New York City metropolitan area,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “We’re thankful for our long-term partnership with IND and look forward to continuing to provide flights to popular destinations.”

Spirit Airlines also offers nonstop flights from Indianapolis into Ft. Lauderdale (FLL), Las Vegas (LAS), Orlando (MCO), Ft. Myers (RSW), and Tampa (TPA).
