Back in October, Spirit Airlines announced that it was investing $250 million to build a new corporate headquarter in Dania Beach, creating 225 new jobs in the area over the next five years. DeSantis, Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez, Spirit Airlines President and CEO Ted Christie and Enterprise Florida Inc. (EFI) President and CEO Jamal Sowell attended the event on Thursday as the new project begins.

“Spirit Airlines is a major job creator for our state, and we are excited that they have chosen to expand their Florida footprint with this new corporate campus,” said DeSantis. “Today’s groundbreaking is just another indication that Florida remains the best state in the nation to start or grow a business.”

“Spirit has called South Florida home for more than 20 years,” said Christie. “This new investment will keep us connected to the community while improving our team’s efficiency and ability to support what is an ever-expanding international operation. Thank you to the governor and lieutenant governor for attending today to show their support for the future of Spirit Airlines and our investment in Florida. We look forward to partnering with our community, creating more jobs and driving future economic development as South Florida’s Hometown Airline.”
