Budget airline EasySky will fly from Fort Lauderdale to Roatán. Spirit operates service to San Pedro Sula, also in Honduras

Monday, December 5, 2011

A new budget airline called EasySky is poised to do battle with Spirit Airlines, the Miramar-based ultra-low-cost carrier -- at least on one of its routes.

Spirit currently operates a red-eye flight between Fort Lauderdale and San Pedro Sula, often with advertised fares as low as $30 (before Spirit's assorted notorious fees are tacked on).

But travelers trying to get from South Florida to Roatán -- the main tourist destination, with famous reefs and beaches -- still had to contend with 1 am arrival times and finding another flight.
