Getting to Jamaica is going to be a whole lot easier next week.

Spirit Airlines, the low-cost carrier, is resuming summer seasonal service between Fort Lauderdale and Kingston, Jamaica, starting this weekend.

The nonstop service, which offers connections from New York’s LaGuardia Airport and other U.S. markets, will operate four days per week on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

“Spirit’s ultra-low fares and optional add-ons provide customers a total price that’s tough to beat to and from Jamaica this summer,” said Spirit’s Chief Marketing Officer Barry Biffle.

The announcement follows news that Spirit Airlines’ profits are also flying high, with first-quarter net income up by 30 percent largely propelled by ticket sales and non-ticket revenue.

“We are pleased to report strong first quarter results. Our team continues to do a great job delivering among the best results in the industry while offering our customers low base fares. Our average base fare per passenger segment in the first quarter 2013 was $79.09,” said Ben Baldanza, Spirit’s president and CEO.

“Spirit is proud to offer extremely low base fares so that, even when adding in optional extras, the total price our customers pay is almost always less than what they would pay on other airlines. We are committed to our low-cost, low-fare strategy and to providing value for our customers and our shareholders,” he added.

Needless to say, Jamaica is very pleased at the announcement from Spirit. “NMIA Airports Limited (NMIAL) welcomes the return of Spirit Airlines to Kingston to serve the air transportation needs of many Jamaicans and visitors who travel daily to and from Jamaica’s capital city,” said Alfred McDonald of the Airports Authority of Jamaica.

“We regard this announcement by Spirit as very timely in maintaining the capacity on the route and anticipate excellent service, as well as great options that cater to the varying needs of passengers at affordable prices. NMIA is committed to providing a world-class airport with a uniquely Jamaican flare and will no doubt facilitate the smooth operation of Spirit at the Norman Manley International Airport. We look forward to Spirit’s ongoing, scheduled service.”

Spirit, with its year-round, scheduled service to Montego Bay, offers ultra-low base fares with a range of optional services, allowing customers the freedom to choose only the extras they value.

Spirit touts that its modern fleet, configuration and other innovations enable the airline to burn less fuel per seat than its competitors, making Spirit one of the most environmentally friendly U.S. carriers. Spirit’s all-Airbus fleet currently operates more than 200 daily flights to more than 50 destinations in the U.S., Latin America and Caribbean.
