MIRAMAR, FL — Pilots for Spirit Airlines have ratified a five-year contract that will raise pay rates by an average 43%.

The airline and the Air Line Pilots Association said Wednesday that 70% of pilots who voted favored the agreement.

The union says the contract also includes double-digit contributions to pilots' retirement plans and job-protection provisions.

CEO Robert Fornaro says the contract will improve efficiency and reliability.

The low-cost carrier has clashed with its pilots at times. Last year Spirit said it lost $45 million when 850 flights were canceled because of what it called an illegal work slowdown. A federal judge ordered pilots back to work after cancellations sparked a passenger melee at a Florida airport.
