Spirit Airlines is moving up the start date for its seasonal service between Arnold Palmer Airport in Latrobe and Myrtle Beach by nearly two months, and will kick off three weekly nonstop flights on Feb. 14.

The low-cost airline said Thursday it also is starting service earlier than usual next year between Niagara Falls/Buffalo and Charleston, W.Va., and the South Carolina resort town. Flights from Chicago and Detroit also will be moved up.

Daily service from Latrobe begins on April 24.

“This is a grand example of the collaborative effort of Spirit Airlines and the airport in providing the tri-state area with exceptional ultra-low discount service,” said Gabe Monzo, executive director of Westmoreland County Airport Authority.
