Frontier Airlines’ new routes just started


American low-cost carrier Frontier just began flying around 18 new routes that the airline announced last year.

Frontier said that it would be offering three new routes to Cancun, Mexico, from Hartford, Connecticut, Buffalo, New York, and Providence, Rhode Island. Those routes started Feb. 17 with Hartford, then Feb. 18 for Buffalo and Feb. 19 for Providence.

The airline also announced new routes to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with Atlanta; Buffalo; Islip, New York; Orlando, Florida; Philadelphia; Providence; Stewart, New York; and Trenton, New Jersey, all starting on Feb. 17.

Routes to Fort Lauderdale from Albany, New York, and Rochester, New York,  began on Feb. 18, and routes to the south Florida city from Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Portland, Maine, began on Feb. 19.

Another part of Frontier’s new expanded service offerings are routes heading to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Flights from Boston and Hartford left Feb. 17 and 18. Those flight routes are expected to run at least three times per week.

Then the airline will be operating a new service from Orlando to Rafael Hernández International Airport in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico three times per week starting on March 24, the airline said.

The Denver-based airline said in November that it would be introducing 18 nonstop routes along with two new destinations and service expansions. While it was unclear what availability would be, the airline said it would “celebrate the new service” offering fairs as low as $19 for some routes, with conditions.

Earlier this month, the low-cost airline announced that it planned to merge with another budget U.S. airline, Spirit. The estimated $6.6 billion dollar deal, as CNBC reported, would create the fifth-largest airline in the United States.

Frontier would hold a majority stake with Spirit, keeping the remaining 48.5% in the deal, CNBC reported.
