Denver-based ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines announced today a major expansion of its flight schedule this fall from Miami International Airport that will include the addition of nine cities – five of which are not currently served by any other airline at MIA. In addition to its daily service to Denver, Frontier will also resume seasonal service to five other U.S. cities, bringing its total number of Miami routes to 15.
The nine cities Frontier will begin serving from MIA between October and December are: Buffalo, New York (thrice-weekly); Cincinnati (thrice-weekly); Cleveland (thrice daily); Detroit (daily); Islip, New York (twice daily); Milwaukee (daily); Providence (daily); San Juan, Puerto Rico (daily); and Trenton, New Jersey (four weekly). Buffalo, Islip, Milwaukee, Providence and Trenton are currently not served by another passenger airline at MIA.
Daily service to Las Vegas will be available in August. In October, Frontier will also bring back seasonal Miami service to Chicago (daily), New York City-La Guardia (daily) and Philadelphia (daily through Nov. 10), followed by seasonal service to Atlanta (daily) beginning in December. Frontier launched into the Miami market in 2014 with service to five U.S. cities, and soon expanded to seven U.S. destinations with 54 weekly departures in 2015.
Frontier carried more than 575,000 passengers to and from Miami in 2016, making it MIA’s seventh-busiest passenger airline.
