KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Spirit Airlines will begin offering five daily flights out of Kansas City in August.

The low-budget airline announced Wednesday that it would offer flights to Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Las Vegas and Houston, beginning Aug. 7.

The airline, based in Miramar, Fla., offers inexpensive flights but also charges for amenities such as soft drinks, carry-on bags and assigned seats. It also has more seats, which don’t recline, in its airplanes.

Kansas City will be the 56th city in Spirit’s network.
