LAS VEGAS (AP) - Spirit Airlines has announced new budget flights between Las Vegas and the East Coast.
The company says Wednesday that it will launch daily nonstop service April 25 between McCarran International Airport and Baltimore's Thurgood Marshall Airport.
It's also starting daily nonstop flights between Las Vegas and the Philadelphia International Airport.
Officials who oversee McCarran say Baltimore and Philadelphia are already among its top 20 feeder airports. The two airports combined have been sending about 1,300 travelers to Las Vegas each day in recent weeks.
