Spirit Airlines, one of the top 10 largest commercial airlines in the United States, is landing 345 jobs outside of Nashville as the company relocates an operations control center from Florida.
The airline plans to invest $11.3 million in the center in Williamson County from Miramar, Florida, said Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and state Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
Spirit will relocate more than 240 positions to Tennessee and create 100 additional jobs, they said. The center's operations includes functions such as flight dispatch, crew scheduling, maintenance control, aircraft routing, air traffic control coordination, guest solutions and more.
Spirit recently entered the Nashville market in October 2019 with nonstop flights to Baltimore/Washington, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Orlando and Tampa. Spirit will also begin service from Nashville to Austin, Cancun, Newark and Los Angeles in the coming months.
