At the Airport

Face mask

Spirit requires appropriate face coverings during your entire journey with us. The only exception to this policy is children under the age of 2. Any other Guest who is unable to wear an appropriate face covering for any reason, including medical, will not be permitted to travel with us at this time. We will continue to evaluate this policy as the situation evolves.
Face coverings must be worn while at the airport, on the jet bridge, and onboard the aircraft.
All face coverings must fit snugly cover the nose and mouth and be secure under the chin and have at least two layers of fabric (e.g. disposable non-medical face mask, multi-layered cloth face covering).
The following items are not considered appropriate face coverings: open-chin triangle bandanas, face coverings containing valves or mesh material, and face shields. Face shields may be worn in addition to a face covering but are not approved as a face covering replacement.

Check-in

We encourage you to use our kiosk self bag-tag, and self bag-drop where available. We’ve also placed social-distancing indicators at all check-in counters.
We are using EPA-registered disinfectants in all check-in and gate areas and are utilizing electrostatic cleaning devices in our high-traffic airports.

Boarding

Guests can scan their own boarding passes and are welcome to board at the end of the boarding process if they wish.

Cleaning

Our aircraft

Spirit uses two EPA-registered fogging treatments to disinfect our aircraft. The first applies a safe, high-grade disinfectant that’s effective against coronaviruses. The second uses an antimicrobial product that forms an invisible barrier on all surfaces that kills bacteria and viruses on contact for 30 days.
Our all-Airbus fleet is equipped with state-of-the-art, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters that capture 99.97% of particles and filters the air for contaminants every 2-3 minutes.
