Spirit Airlines has announced the opening of a new crew base for pilots at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in September 2024, furthering the airline’s investments to enhance operational reliability. Spirit expects to locate approximately 200 Pilots in Newark initially, with additional supervisors and support functions to follow.

Crew bases are the various airport stations where flight crews typically begin and end their trips. Newark is well suited for the new Pilot crew base thanks to its strategic location within Spirit’s network and sizeable flight schedule. Spirit has grown to become the second largest carrier at EWR with up to 32 peak day departures and service to 22 destinations, including seven destinations added in the past year. The airline launched service at EWR in October 2016.
