Barkley has won a pitch for Spirit Airlines' creative and media business, the airline has confirmed.

Sources previously identified the other finalists as The Richards Group in Dallas and Walrus in New York. A New York-based consultancy, Ark Advisors, managed the review, which began in the summer.

When asked about the hire, Spirit vp of consumer marketing Bobby Schroeter cited the strength of the ideas that Barkley presented, some of which will be produced.

The agency, he added, managed to "best show how we can promote our value proposition of ultra-low fares and choice to our customers in a way that is provocative and gets attention at a low cost."
