We’re sorry to hear that you had a mishandled bag and the inconveniences that were caused during your trip. We’d like to make every effort to earn your future business. Making a report at the airport of arrival is the first step of the claims process.
Please note: Reports at the station are not claims but rather a record of your mishandled baggage event. You will need to continue with filing a claim using the Customer Property Claim Form, which can be found at the end of this document.
To initiate the claims process:
- Reports should be made with a Spirit employee at the airport of arrival within 4 hours for domestic travel, 7 days for international damage reports, and 21 days for international loss, delayed, and pilferage reports.
- Upon making the report, Guests will receive a Baggage Irregularity Receipt or a Luggage Service Report with details about the claims process and a report number. If a report is not made at the arriving airport in the prescribed time, claims will be denied.
- Review and complete the below Customer Property Form in its entirety. (The form can be found on the end of this page)
- Save the completed Customer Property Form to your computer.
