Cake and a ribbon cutting, two of the key ingredients needed to celebrate a route launch. Cleveland Airport chose to go with a Safari-themed cake to toast the start of flights to San Diego, with the Californian city being home to one of the most famous zoos in the world, housing over 3,700 animals of more than 650 species and subspecies. Seen cutting the ribbon in Cleveland are Richard Oliver, Corporate Communications, Frontier Airlines and Robert Kennedy, Cleveland Airport Director. Both were then joined by Frontier Airlines staff and Todd Payne, Chief of Marketing and Air Service Development, Cleveland Airport, for a cake cutting photo. Frontier Airlines will serve the route four times weekly.
A ribbon cutting was also conducted at Cincinnati Airport to officially open Frontier Airlines’ new service to San Diego. The carrier will operate the 2,993-kilometre route three times weekly on its fleet of A320s.
- Frontier Airlines this week introduced two new unique routes to San Diego (SAN), with the carrier launching flights to the Californian city from Cincinnati (CVG) and Cleveland (CLE). “The growth of Frontier at Cincinnati over the last four years has been incredible,” said Candace McGraw, CEO Cincinnati Airport. “The airline now offers 17 non-stop year-round and/or seasonal destinations on 93 flights a week. Frontier also becomes the airport’s fourth largest carrier in terms of daily flights and second largest carrier in terms of seats offered. This success would not have been possible without the support of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community.” Frontier will operate the 2,993-kilometre link between Cincinnati and San Diego, which launched 21 May, three times weekly (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays). Flights on the 3,254-kilometre city pairing of Cleveland and San Diego, which began 22 May, will be flown four times weekly, with both routes being served by the carrier’s fleet of A320s. Finally this week, Frontier has also started a connection between Cleveland and Houston Intercontinental (IAH). Also launched 22 May, the 1,754-kilometre route, which will also be flown on A320s, will go head-to-head with United Airlines, with the Star Alliance member already providing 33 weekly flights on the sector according to OAG schedules.
