Performance

A Diversified Network

We ended 2017 with 100 destinations in our route network. In 2017, we consolidated our Ohio operations by closing Dayton International Airport and Akron-Canton Airport and launched service at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. We were excited to open our brand new international terminal at Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) in the summer of 2017, launching inaugural service from FLL to Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman in June and to Providenciales International Airport in Turks and Caicos in November.

In an effort to concentrate our service to Cuba in Havana at the José Martí International Airport, we ceased operations in Santa Clara and Varadero in 2017. Our international footprint grew during 2017 with the successful launch of international service from Oakland International Airport, Nashville International Airport, and St. Louis Lambert International Airport. We ended 2017 with service to 14 international destinations in 10 countries, from 16 gateway cities in the 48 contiguous states.
