To keep ticket prices affordable (Bare Fare™), Spirit Airlines charges for checked-in and carry-on baggage. Only one personal item not exceeding 45 x 35 x 20 cm in dimensions is included in the ticket. The dimensions of the carry-on bag should not exceed 56 x 46 x 25 cm and that of each checked piece should not exceed the overall dimensions of 158 cm and 18.1 kg in weight.
Children between the ages of 5 and 14 are treated as unaccompanied minors when traveling alone (without another traveler who is at least 15 years of age). Such minors will only be allowed on direct, domestic flights, not on international flights or connecting flights. Children that are 15 years of age or older do not need to travel as an unaccompanied minor when traveling alone. The person dropping the child off must remain at the airport for at least 15 minutes after flight departure. Passengers must specify the child’s unaccompanied minor status while making a Spirit Airlines flight booking.
Only small dogs, cats and domesticated birds can be carried on-board by passengers in containers that can be comfortably placed under the seat in front of each traveler. Spirit Airlines allows only domestic dogs, domestic cats, small household birds, and small domestic rabbits onboard its flights. Passengers are advised to make early bookings as only six pet containers are accepted in the cabins of all domestic flights.
In an attempt to provide affordable Bare Fare™ to all passengers, Spirit Airlines doesn’t offer complimentary food and beverage service or in-flight Wi-Fi and entertainment. But a wide range of meals (that cater to most dietary requirements) and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) can be purchased using a debit or credit card. For people with peanut allergies, Spirit offers a peanut-free buffer zone which includes the row of the concerned passenger, the row of seats before and after them, and the corresponding rows on either side of the aisle.
Spirit Airline offers its passengers the facility of web check-in that opens 24 hours prior to flight departure and closes an hour before the scheduled departure. Passengers can easily choose their preferred seats and print their boarding passes in advance to enjoy a hassle-free experience at the airport.
Spirit Airlines has been awarded the ‘Top Airline Industry Award – Value Airline of the Year’ by Air Transport World in 2019. It has one of the best customer membership programs in the world.
