From 1 July, Frontier Airlines will begin five new nonstop routesbetween Wilmington, DE, andChicago-Midway, Denver, Houston, Orlando, and Tampa, as well as offer connecting service via Denver to destinations across the west.
Using 168-seat Airbus A320s, Frontier will be the only airline providing scheduled service from Wilmington/Philadelphia Airport, just a short drive from downtown Philadelphia.
This expansion comes shortly after Frontier’s entry into Trenton, NJ, where the airline now offers 10 destinations.
“This is an exciting day for Frontier as we bring low-fares and friendly service to the convenient Wilmington/Philadelphia Airport, providing time-and-money-saving options to customers in Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland,” declared Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice-president, commercial. “Customers who fly Frontier from Wilmington/Philadelphia can skip congested and expensive alternative hubs in the region and enjoy quick, convenient, low-fare travel to great destinations.”
Services to Chicago-Midway will begin on 1 July, operating 3 times a week with Airbus A320s, as will services to Houston.
On 2 July, the routes to Denver (4 sevices a week) and Orlando (twice a week) will begin, followed on 4 July by flights to/from Tampa as part of a twice-weekly service.
