Ultra low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines has announced that it will now be operating 22 new routes from RDU, LAS, PHL and MCO. The increase, explained the carrier, is not only ensuring growth between the cities and destinations that it already serves, but helping to make air travel more accessible.
Ultra low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines has unveiled that it will now be operating 22 new routes from from Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), McCarran International Airport (LAS), Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO). In a statement, Frontier said that these services will commence this spring.
A full list of cities to be served by the airline from these airports is available to view here.
Speaking of this expansion, Daniel Shurz, Senior Vice President, Commercial for Frontier Airlines, said, “With the addition of these 22 new routes, Frontier has added its 106th city, Boston, and increased service in 19 other cities across our network. We continue to make air travel more accessible and affordable for Americans. We look forward to making it easier for people to fly, and for people to fly more often.”
Shurz also told the outlet that these new routes are a bid by the carrier to increase connections between the destinations it already serves. “We’re growing from our second-, third- and fourth-largest operations,” Shurz told USA Today, referring to the airline’s operations in Orlando, Las Vegas and Philadelphia.
On the back of this announcement, the carrier took the opportunity to remind its passengers that it offers customers more than low fares.
“The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees and priority boarding,” it added.
