Frontier Airlines add 85 new routes

Frontier Airlines has announced a significant network expansion adding 21 new cities which will increase the number of destinations served by the low-fare carrier by 30 percent and double the number of total routes.

“We are proud to announce the nationwide expansion of our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right which will empower millions more people to afford to fly,” Barry Biffle, president and CEO for Frontier Airlines, said. “We project this will save our customers over a billion dollars annually on their flights. These new flights will allow us to serve even more of America and make flying a truly affordable option.”

The announcement includes new routes to twenty-one new cities (eight on sale today), about a 30 percent increase in cities to 82 cities; eighty-five new routes (forty-nine on sale), while nonstop routes will nearly double by Summer of 2018 to 314. Total routes (including connections) grow to well over 1000 by Summer 2018 (more than double the current number of total routes).

“Customers will benefit not only from the broad new selection of nonstop routes, but our growing network will provide more than 1,000 new connecting route options,” Biffle continued. “By taking advantage of our natural share of connecting passengers, we can offer our low fares to even more of America. This is particularly important through our largest hub and our home in Denver.”
