A couple of airlines have begun or are beginning new service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and some popular destinations.

On Thursday, Spirit Airlines began a single flight a day each to Boston and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

“We’re all about giving customers the opportunity to save money on air travel and today travelers from throughout Dallas/Fort Worth, Boston and Phoenix have the opportunity to take advantage of our ultra low fares to even more destinations,” said Barry Biffle, Spirit’s chief marketing officer.

On Sunday, Delta Air Lines begins six daily flights between Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and New York LaGuardia, as part of its LaGuardia expansion. (CORRECTION: Originally said Saturday.)

“An important part of our strategy to become the preferred airline in New York is connecting to key business markets, and that includes daily jet service between the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and LaGuardia,” said Gail Grimmett, Delta’s senior vice president for New York.

The Spirit flights are good for people who like to avoid airport crowds or daylight, perhaps the schedule of choice for pseudo-vampires.

The D/FW-Mesa flight leaves at 11 p.m. and arrives out there at 11:15 p.m. It returns at 12:45 a.m. and gets back to D/FW at 5 a.m. The Boston flight departs D/FW at 1:10 a.m. and arrives there at 5:40 a.m. It leaves Boston at 6:20 a.m. and gets to D/FW at 9:25 a.m.

Delta won’t actually operate the Delta flights. It will use Shuttle America, flying as the Delta Connection. Shuttle America is one of the carriers operated by Republic Airways. The flights will use 70-seat Embraer ERJ-170 jets.
