On December 1 last year, the airline started flights twice daily between Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International and Havana International.
However President and CEO of Spirit, Bob Fornardo told the Sun Sentinel newspaper last week that “ the costs of serving Havana continue to outweigh the demand for service”.
As a result, Spirit will begin reducing frequencies starting next month before completely withdrawing from the Cuban capital on June 1.
The other airlines to cease operations are Silver Airways that will pull out as of April 22, while Frontier Airlines will have its last flight to the island on June 4.
