There will be one less option when booking flights to and from Denver International Airport in 2024. 

Spirit Airlines will no longer provide flights in or out of the Denver International Airport after Jan. 9, 2024.

According to a statement, Spirit Airlines will offer refunds to customers with reservations after Jan 9.

“As we continue to learn more about how Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engine availability impacts our fleet and operations, we’re forced to make some tough choices. After considering those constraints and the underperformance of our routes through Denver International Airport (DEN), we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue service at the airport, effective Jan. 9, 2024.”

Spirit Airlines has discontinued service at DIA before. The airline was in Denver from 2002 until 2004, and then returned in May of 2012.
