Spirit Airlines giving away flights Thursday at Independence Visitor Center
Spirit Airlines is marking its new service to and from Philadelphia by giving away free flights at the Independence Visitor Center.
The airline says the first 1,000 people to arrive at the center on Thursday, starting at 11 a.m., will receive 25,000 frequent-flyer miles each, enough for a standard round-trip ticket.
Spirit recently began offering nonstop flights from Philadelphia to Dallas-Fort Worth, Myrtle Beach and Las Vegas.
Those who receive the frequent-flyer miles will still need to pay taxes and fees for their flights.
The center is located at 1 North Independence Mall West, near Sixth and Market streets.
