In April 2017, Spirit Airlines announced it was the third US carrier to announce its impending withdrawal from the Cuban market. As with Frontier Airlines and Silver Airways , the Ultra Low-Cost Carrier blamed insufficient loads to warrant continued flights. The Floridian carrier began a 2x daily Fort Lauderdale Int'l-Havana Int'l service on December 1 last year. As it stands, the carrier will begin reducing frequencies from next month before completely withdrawing from the Cuban capital from June 1. Silver Airways will withdraw from Cuba from April 22 while Frontier's last flight to the island is scheduled for June 4.
Beginning of May 2017, Spirit Airlines confirmed that it has abandoned plans to take delivery of any more A320neos until 2019. In May 2017, Spirit Airlines announced it had steadied operations as mass cancellations ended. The Miramar-based airline (Nasdaq: SAVE) said its abnormal wave of flight cancellations has come to a halt, with fewer than 1 percent of its flights cancelled since Mother's Day and no cancellations since the start of the week. Earlier in the month, the airline was reporting as many as 50-60 flights cancelled a day across its system, stranding thousands of passengers. The ultra-low-cost carrier blamed the weeks-long episode on group of unionized pilots who, according to a complaint filed earlier this month, were refusing to pick up extra flights or work overtime at an unusual rate.
