Frontier Airlines has begun new nonstop service between its Denver hub and both Newport News/Williamsburg, VA (PHF) and Madison, WI (MSN) as well as service between Kansas City, MO (MCI) and Columbus, Ohio (CMH).
These services are part of a significant period of growth for the Denver-based carrier, which is growing by 7% in seat miles this year, making it the fastest-growing major airline in the United States.
“This is a very exciting time for us at Frontier Airlines,” declared Daniel Shurz, vice-president of strategy and planning. “The integration of Frontier and Midwest Airlines into one carrier, operating under the Frontier Airlines name, now offers our customers more destinations at an affordable price, with an unmatched customer service experience. We are growing faster than any other major airline in the United States and that growth will continue over the next six weeks as we wrap up this 17-market expansion.”
In the coming weeks, Frontier Airlines will launch service between Denver and Fairbanks, Alaska; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Long Beach, California; New Orleans; and Santa Barbara, California. The carrier will also launch service from Milwaukee to both Seattle/Tacoma and from Kansas City to New Orleans.
