Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines today launches service from Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW). Eight of the airline’s 11 new routes begin this week as MDW becomes Frontier’s primary airport in Chicago. Additionally, the airline will continue to serve Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD). To celebrate MDW as Frontier’s newest airport, the airline is offering fares as low as $59* on nonstop flights to several popular U.S. destinations.
“We’re excited to launch service from Chicago Midway today, serving a wide variety of popular destinations spanning the U.S. from coast to coast,” said Joshua Rashkin, director of marketing, Frontier Airlines. “With this inaugural service, MDW becomes our primary Chicago Airport. We continue to offer service from O’Hare, as well, providing Chicago-area consumers an abundance of choice to enjoy Frontier’s ultra-low fares and friendly service.”
“On behalf of Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the entire Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), I am thrilled to welcome Frontier Airlines back to Midway International Airport,” said City of Chicago Commissioner of Aviation Jamie L. Rhee. “Travellers now have two airport options – O’Hare and Midway – to fly Frontier to visit the ‘Windy City,’ voted Best Big City in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler for the fifth year in a row.”
