Spirit Airlines said Monday that it's promoting the start of its service this week in the Twin Cities by giving away 2,000 certificates for frequent flyer bonus miles.

The certificates are for 20,000 miles each. The Miramar, Fla.-based carrier said that's enough for a free roundtrip award ticket, with taxes and fees from $5 per award ticket.

Spirit is starting service Thursday from Minneapolis-St. Paul with three daily non-stop flights to Chicago's O'Hare Airport and daily non-stop service to Las Vegas with connections available to Boston, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, New York LaGuardia and Orlando.

Spirit said people must be 18 years or older to get the certificates, which will be given away on a first-come first-serve basis. One thousand will be handed out at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Mall of America north lot near Nordstrom's. Another thousand will be given away at noon Thursday at Travel One Inc., 8009 34th Av. S. in Bloomington.
