Frontier Airlines will add non-stop service from Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport to its Denver hub.
The Denver-based low-fare airline has focused on other cities, such as Philadelphia, in recent years after Southwest Airlines added flights. More recently, it has been rebuilding its presence at the Colorado airport as new jets are delivered.
Until now, the airline had stayed away from Baltimore, a hub for Southwest. The flights to Baltimore-Washington will operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Frontier typically targets leisure travelers with flights that operate a few days a week. The carrier does offer daily nonstops from Philadelphia to Denver and Orlando.
In addition to Baltimore-Washington, the airline added nonstops from Denver to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Hartford, CT. Service will begin in March 2019.
“With the addition of these three new routes, we now serve 93 cities non-stop from Denver,” said Tyri Squyres, vice president of marketing for Frontier Airlines. “As Denver’s hometown airline, we are extremely proud to continue to not only make flying more affordable but to expand the number of non-stop destinations. In fact, in the last year alone, we announced or kicked off 37 new routes from Denver.”
Frontier is an ultra-low fare airline with lower base pricing and extra charges for seat assignments, checked luggage and other features. The company has been pushing, The Works. The bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees and priority boarding.
Frontier has 350 daily flights to 100 cities. The airline briefly served New Castle Airport before expanding in Philadelphia.
