Frontier Airlines is to extend its seasonal service to Anchorage, Alaska, by three weeks and will also reintroduce a Saturday daytime flight.
The seasonal nonstop service from Denver to Anchorage, scheduled to begin on 14 May, will now operate until 10 October. In addition to the extended season, Frontier will also reintroduce a Saturday daytime flight between 19 June and 6 September, providing two flights on the most popular travel day.
“Anchorage has always been a popular summer destination for Frontier customers,” said Daniel Shurz, VP of planning and strategy. “Extending our service by three weeks and reintroducing our Saturday daytime flight provides greater opportunity for our customers to plan their visit to the last frontier and do so at a time that best meets their needs. We are thrilled to have Anchorage as one of our two Alaska destinations, and through our codeshare relationship with Midwest Airlines we are providing access to the state from even more cities.”
Frontier began service to Anchorage in May 2004 and recently announced a seasonal service to Fairbanks, which will begin on 14 May and operate four days a week until 11 September.
