Frontier Adds Routes to Philadelphia International Airport
Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines will add new routes to the Philadelphia International Airport this spring, according to the Business Journal.
Starting March 13th, Frontier will reportedly add year-round flights between Philly and Houston – available on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday – and seasonal flights to West Palm Beach, Florida until April 19th.
The carrier will also expand its flight attendant base in both Philadelphia and Trenton. According to the Business Journal, Frontier plans to build a crew room at the Philadelphia Airport as its crew in the city grows from about 70 to 150 members.
Frontier has long been expanding in Philadelphia. This past January, the airline added 10 nonstop flights from Philadelphia to cities across the U.S. Many of those nonstop routes were only previously available through American Airlines.
At the time, Frontier President Barry Biffle said in a statement that having more options in big cities – and thus more competition – works to drive down overall flight prices. In fact, Philadelphia’s Dan McQuade once flew Frontier from Philly to Miami for just 30 bucks.
