Spirit Airlines

Spirit Airlines began as Clippert Trucking Company in 1964. A decade later, the company was renamed Ground Air Transfer, Inc. The company then became Charter One and, in 1992 became Spirit Airlines. Scheduled passenger service followed.

Over the years, Spirit has operated as a low-cost and ultra low cost carrier in North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. In 2004, Spirit began its transition to an all-Airbus fleet which serves over 50 communities.
