Frontier launches services to Minot in the oil-rich Northern Dakota
Frontier inaugurated services on the route from Denver, CO (DEN) to Minot, ND (MOT), which are offered with four weekly frequencies from 5 November. Commenting on the launch, Minot Airport’s MD, Andy Solsvig, said: “Having Frontier Airlines announce they’re coming to Minot is a whole different animal and we’re excited about having an affordable airline enter this rapidly growing market.” In recent years, Minot has benefited from major investments in oil drilling, which increased its profile and, in June 2010, attracted first scheduled service to Denver from United Airlines. The carrier, which gradually developed the market, now offers 25 weekly competing services on the route. For its part, Frontier will operate its new route with E-190s.
