Frontier Airlines plans to expand its services to Mexico with the addition of new nonstop destinations from both Denver and Kansas City.
Seasonal nonstop service between Kansas City (MCI) and Los Cabos (SJD) will operate between 18 December 2010 through to 16 April 2011. Another seasonal service, between Denver (DEN) and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo (ZIH) will operate from 15 January-26 March 2011.
Frontier now serves six nonstop Mexico destinations from Denver and three from Kansas City. Both new routes will be flown by the carrier’s 99-seat Embraer 190s featuring two-by-two all-leather seating with four rows of STRETCH seating, which provides an additional five inches of legroom. These new routes, which remain subject to government approval, will be Frontier’s first deployment of E-190s into Mexico.
Frontier has also announced that it is extending the season for its Indianapolis–Cancún service. This year, the Saturday-only service will start six weeks earlier on 6 November 2010 and extend to 30 April 2011.
The Kansas City–Los Cabos service will leave the former each Saturday at 09:55 and arrive in the Mexican city at 12:32. The return flight will take off from Los Cabos at 13:30 and land back at Kansas City at 17:50 (all times local).
On the other new route, the aircraft will depart Denver at 08:50 and touchdown in Ixtapa at 13:40. In the opposite direction, flights will depart Ixtapa at 14:30 and land in Denver at 17:25.
