Frontier To Double Route Network

Frontier To Double Route Network

The low-priced airline will offer non-stop flights from Grand Rapids to Denver and from Grand Rapids to Orlando, which the airport said is the number-one market for non-stop service out of the airport.

Airport Director Bill Vanacek said Frontier Airlines' decision to begin flights later this year bodes well forthe facility. Copa Airline's service to Panama City, which began 2013, was Tampa Bay's first nonstop flight to a major Latin America hub.

Introductory and sale fares are as low as $39 each way but keep in mind that Frontier fares are laden with all sorts of extra fees, which it calls "Optional Services."

"We project this will save our customers over a billion dollars annually on their flights", President and CEO Barry Biffle said in a written statement.

The announcement is part of Frontier's bigger national expansion to 21 new cities and 85 new routes.




The new routes for Frontier will make it the carrier with the second largest number of destinations from cities such as Orlando, trailing just Southwest. Flights to Denver will start some time in spring 2018. Frontier, along with the Florida-based Spirit, has spearheaded the growth of the ULCC in the USA - prompting major legacy carriers to adapt with new products such as basic economy fares.

Wapner said ticketing for Frontier begins today, and he noted that Denver is the headquarters for Frontier which means more connections for East Coast service. "The additional direct flights will stimulate travel, tourism and our regional economy", City Manager Tommy Gonzalez said. Tickets are on sale now for flights to Miami, which start on October 5.

Official details on when the new service will start, the availability or frequency is not yet available.

The remaining 16 additions had previously been destinations that the airline had served, but had since been discontinued.

Frontier will serve a total of 82 cities following the huge expansion, which is expected to double the total number of routes in the airline's network.
