Frontier to launch 19 new routes

The ULCC will begin the new flights in the first half of 2021.

Frontier Airlines will start three new services from its home city of Denver (DEN) alongside routes from California's Oakland International Airport (OAK), Ontario International Airport (ONT) and Sacramento International Airport (SMF), as well as Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Florida.

OAK is a new destination for the carrier, along with Cozumel (CZM), Mexico and St. Thomas (STT) in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The majority of the new services, which will begin in the first half of 2021, will be 4X-weekly. Some flights will start at 2X-weekly and increase in frequency later next year. MCO to Miami International Airport (MIA) will be a daily service.

Listen: We speak to Frontier Airlines CEO Barry Biffle to learn how the ULCC is aiming to bounce back from COVID-19.

Seven of the new services will depart from ONT, the joint-highest number alongside MCO.

ONT CEO Mark Thorpe said: “Frontier is a longtime Ontario partner—the first to announce new service after ONT’s transfer to local control in 2016.

“Like other carriers, Frontier felt the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but is now betting that a rebuild of its Ontario flight schedule will help quicken its return to profitability. And that’s a good bet.”
