Frontier Airlines increases flight route

Published on : Saturday, May 30, 2020

Frontier Airlines is going to attempt to leave the industry catastrophe related to COVID-19 behind by increasing flight routes to and from Southwest Florida International Airport.

Starting Thursday, the customers could book round-trip flights from Fort Myers to the new destinations of Boston, Massachusetts, Chicago, Illinois, Long Island, New York (Islip) and Newark, New Jersey.

The new flights begin July 2 and 3. They will boost the non-stop Frontier Airlines destinations in Fort Myers from 11 to 15.

Daniel Shurz, senior vice president for commercial flights at Frontier Airlines said that Frontier Airlines said that this announcement does, is it builds them to our largest-ever number of destinations in the summer.

Frontier also is expanding in Sarasota and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The airline is taking steps to ease traveler fears during the coronavirus global pandemic, Shurz said. Plexiglass windows are being added to counters in terminals. Beginning May 8, flyers were required to wear masks during pre-boarding and during flights. Beginning Monday, June 1, flyers will have their temperatures screened. Those registering a 100.4degree temperature or higher will not be allowed to board a flight and will have to reschedule to another day.

Frontier Airlines flight crews and all other employees also will be screened for their temperatures.

In April, airline traffic dropped by 95% from the year prior because of stay-at-home orders, the threat of the virus and fear.

“We’re absolutely seeing signs that it’s getting better,” Shurz said. “It’s far from a full recovery, but we are seeing the demand change going into June and July.” The middle seats will continue to be unavailable, as flights were at under 50% capacity in May, he said.
