Wednesday's round of snow, sleet and ice may have you thinking that it's time for some sun and warmth. Starting Thursday, Spirit Airlines will give you a chance to get away.

The low-fare airline, which began serving Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in 2012, will add seasonal service to Los Angeles, Phoenix, Orlando and Tampa. Spirit also will resume seasonal service to Ft. Myers and Ft. Lauderdale.

Spirit flys out of Terminal 2, also known as the Humphrey Terminal. In addition to its seasonal service to warm-weather destinations, the airline provides regular nonstop service to Dallas-Ft. Worth, Chicago and Las Vegas.

"Spirit Airlines' continued growth at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is good news for travelers, increasing competition on routes and enhancing low-fare options," said Jeff Hamiel, Executive Director/CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which owns and operates MSP. "One of the advantages of Spirit's à la carte pricing model is that it enables savvy travelers to take trips they otherwise might not be able to afford."

Here is the schdeule that will go into effect Thursday.
