Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is to see a new nonstop service to San Antonio with low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines.
The new seasonal service will join flights on the airlines existing nonstop routes from CLE and will start on 13 August, served on Mondays and Fridays with an Airbus A319.
Robert Kennedy, airport director, told Regional Gateway: “We are very pleased that after a brief cumulative service reduction in 2017, Frontier Airlines is again focused on growing at CLE by adding their fourteenth nonstop market.
“The CLE to San Antonio (SAT) market has been our third largest unserved market behind only San Diego and Kansas City. Filling our top unserved markets is always important as we desire to add service where our travellers desire to fly. We hope that demand for the new service will lead to additional days of operation.
Frontier said in a statement: “We are proud to continue our commitment and bring even more low fares to Cleveland with our fourteenth destination.”
The airline has a fleet of nearly 80 Airbus A320 Family of jet aircraft, with nearly 200 more new aircraft on order. The airline aims to grow and modernise its fleet to deliver affordable travel across America, and by 2026 the company says it will be in a position to deliver its low fares to more than 50 million passengers a year.
