Frontier Airlines to expand at Philadelphia International Airport with flights to Minneapolis, Houston
Frontier Airlines announced last week that it will be introducing new seasonal daily nonstop service from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport beginning April 30. With the new routes, Frontier will service nine destinations nonstop from PHL. Flights to Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Cancun began in December and flights to Atlanta, Charlotte and Chicago O’Hare are set to begin next month.
To celebrate the new service, today only, Frontier is offering $29 one-way fares to Minneapolis and $39 one-way fares to Houston on specific dates. Introductory one-way fares of $49 to Minneapolis and $59 to Houston on specific dates are available through February 21. For more information, visit www.flyfrontier.com
The Denver-based airline, which brought its “Low Fares Done Right” service to PHL in 2004, also operates nonstop flights to Punta Cana from PHL.
”We are very excited that Frontier Airlines continues to expand its presence at Philadelphia International Airport with new low-fare flights to Minneapolis and Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport,” said Airport CEO Mark Gale. “This is great news for the traveling public in the Philadelphia region and beyond. More low-fare choices mean more competition, which is good for the consumer. We look forward to more low-fare service from Frontier to more cities from Philadelphia.”
