By the summer of 2018, Frontier Airlines will operate 314 non-stop flights, which is the double what it flies today.
According to the Chief executive Officer Barry Biffle in an official statement said that these new flights would allow them to serve even more of America and make the flying much easier and cheaper.
Sunny locales like Tampa, Miami, Orlando, Fort Myers, Fla., and Cancun, Mexico will all get expanded service and its base in Denver International Airport will get 19 new destinations. Frontier Airlines is operating to 54 destinations in the USA and 5 international destinations. It is a subsidiary of Indo Flights. With its expansion, the airline says it will serve 90% of the population in the continental U.S. It is hoping that this ultra low-cost carrier will offer more offers and discounts to its customers so that the journey will be safe and more affordability. Over the last decade, Frontier Airlines has been transformed from an insolvent legacy carrier into a rapidly expanding, ultra-low cost airline under new management.
The number of passengers flown by Frontier Airlines grew by more than 15% last year and its airbuses were fuller than any carrier. The aggressive expansion under new management is aimed to compete with established carriers like Southwest Airlines and United Airlines. The new routes of Frontier Airlines will make it the airline with the second most destinations from cities like Orlando, behind Southwest.
The expansion, however, largely steers clear of territory dominated by ultra-low cost rival Spirit Airlines. . Frontier airline has 55 more single-aisle aircraft on order from Airbus. U.S. carriers have returned to competitive growth after a decade of consolidation and restructuring.
The low-cost airlines like Spirit and Frontier offer tickets that don’t include assigned seating, checked baggage or even carry-on, in some cases, have brought new low-fare competition in cities across the country. Frontier Airlines ranked second from the bottom in customer satisfaction behind Spirit Airlines.
