Frontier Airlines is expanding its signature low-fare service from Raleigh/Durham International Airport (RDU) to eight new destinations, with the flights starting on April 30th/May 1st. The addition of these destinations means the airline will serve 32 cities non-stop from the Triangle, more than any other airline. To celebrate the new routes, Frontier is offering special introductory one-way fares as low as $29* which are available now on flyfrontier.com.
The new destinations are Albany (ALB), Hartford (BDL), Islip (ISP), Tampa (TPA), Philadelphia (PHL), Jacksonville (JAX), Columbus (CMH), and Boston (BOS) which becomes the 106th city in Frontier’s network. Frontier will be the only airline offering non-stop service on three of these routes. The carrier will operate the flights with the Airbus A320 family of aircraft.
Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees and priority boarding.
The airline’s frequent flier program, FRONTIER Miles lets members enjoy many benefits as well as attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly, and the program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named, because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. If a customer travels a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.
Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry, the Airbus A320 Family of more than 80 jet aircraft. With nearly 200 new planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company will continue to keep fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.
Frontier wants its customers to have more options when they fly and there is no fee for reservation changes made 90 days or more from the travel date. If you need to make a change between 89 and 14 days from departure, the fee is only $49. Changes made 13 days or less from travel cost $119. When making a change, customers just pay any increase in fare that applies.
