Frontier’s arrival at South Bend Airport in Indiana was a much-anticipated event. Speaking to the gathered media, VIPs and passengers travelling on the first flight was Mike Daigle, the airport’s executive director.
- Frontier Airlines added a new destination to its network on 11 October when the airline connected its Denver, CO (DEN) base with South Bend, IN (SBN). The Indiana airport was previously only served by Delta, United and Allegiant. The new 1,560-kilometre service is operated four times weekly with 138-seat A319 aircraft. “Frontier Airlines is an ideal match for our airport and we are delighted that they have chosen to begin nonstop service to Denver from SBN,” said Mike Daigle, executive director of the St. Joseph County Airport Authority. “The new service is a vital western connection that will help the region to attract new business and tourists, while creating a more affordable and more comfortable option for travellers going west from SBN.”
