The new flights start this September, the airline said.
By the end of 2018, the South Florida-based airline will expand to 50 flights a day at OIA, making Orlando the airline’s second biggest market.
The airport, which is the busiest in Florida, is already undergoing major changes. A new south terminal is expected to open in 2020.
