PHOENIX -- Spirit Airlines has only been flying out of Sky Harbor for two weeks but the low-cost carrier is already expanding.

The Florida-based flier started nonstop service Thursday to Chicago, Denver and Minneapolis.

"We have a lot of planes on order in the next few years and we look forward to future expansion. We'll see," said Misty Pinson, a spokeswoman for the airline.

Pinson said there will be one flight each day to and from the three cities and will have introductory deals online.

The airline moved out of Mesa Gateway Airport on Oct. 23 and started operating out of the Valley's main the next day.
