MSP airport and Spirit Airlines this morning confirmed that the carrier is coming to the Twin Cities.
In a press release on Globe Newswire, Spirit says it will offer flights from MSP to Chicago and Las Vegas for $28.79. (That's a $9 base fare. The rest are taxes and fees.) Those deals are available Wednesday and Thursday. You can book one of those flights right here.
So who is Spirit Airlines? The carrier says they offer "ultra low base fares with a range of optional services for a fee." Well, a reporter for the Washington Post says they're one of the "biggest culprits" when it comes to piling on those fees. Here's the Post's guide to getting low airfares when flying Spirit.

Spirit will fly out daily to Las Vegas and three times a day to Chicago starting May 31.
