Detroit, July 31, 2014 (STAT):-Spirit Airlines has launched daily services to Atlanta and New Orleans from Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW).  On another development, American Airlines has reversed its earlier decision to stop  services between Detroit and Washington-National Airport Detroit Metro Airport is also celebrating another air service success with American Airlines.  Following the approval of its merger with US Airways, earlier this Spring, American Airlines announced that a number of airports would lose service from its Washington-National hub as a result of changes required by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to increase overall air service competition. “Making sure our passengers have more than one option to such an important airport for our community was definitely a priority for us,” said Airport Authority CEO Tom Naughton.  “Washington-National would have been the largest market from Detroit to be operated by only one carrier, but thanks to the hard work and efforts of our Air Service Development and Government Affairs teams, we will maintain competition on this critical route.”
