Low-cost airline Virgin America today announced plans to launch daily, nonstop service from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to two California destinations this fall.
Beginning Nov. 18, the carrier will fly two routes to San Francisco and Los Angeles seven days a week, airline spokeswoman Abby Lunardini said. Introductory fares as low as $99 each way from Fort Lauderdale to both cities are available online, she said.
Low-cost carrier Virgin America, which today unveiled plans to offer daily non-stop flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, to San Francisco is already facing fierce airline competition: JetBlue Airways.
The New York-based low-cost carrier announced this afternoon plans to start a daily, nonstop flight to San Francisco beginning Nov. 17. JetBlue's service will begin the day before Virgin kicks off its twice-daily, nonstop service to both San Francisco and Los Angeles on Nov. 18.
