Spirit Airlines is ramping up daily, nonstop seasonal service from Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks to Florida's Gulf Coast, beginning Thursday.

The service will take passengers from Windsor Locks to airports in Tampa and Fort Myers, the airline said.

Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines' vice president of network planning, said "ultra-low cost options" are in demand as the cold descends on the Northeast.

The airline operates several daily flights from Hartford, including service to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Fort Myers and Tampa. Bradley joined Spirit's network earlier this year.

"We are pleased to strengthen our partnership with Spirit Airlines at Bradley International Airport, as the Fort Myers and Tampa service bring us to five nonstop routes added by the airline over the past seven months," said Connecticut Airport Authority Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon. "Spirit's service has been very well-received by our Bradley passengers, and we are pleased to continue enhancing options for our travelers."
