Possible changes to come for Spirit Airlines ticket prices

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - For most people, choosing to fly Spirit Airlines comes down to low prices, but it looks like those prices might jump when it comes to flying during the holidays.

Spirit Airlines is a popular choice for travelers coming to and from Myrtle Beach International Airport. 

The airline is able to keep the cost of  a standard plane ticket low because the carrier offers other applied fees; for example, carrying on extra luggage, or choosing a seat on the plane. 

Spirit Airlines CEO said they don't plan to add new fees, but they're considering tying the ones it already has to demand. 

This could mean charging the highest fares during peak travel times, like holidays, and offering bigger discounts during the slower times of the year. 

The CEO did add that if these changes were officially made by the air carrier, they wouldn't go into effect until next year.
