Frontier launches new routes from Denver and Orlando

Harrisburg in Pennsylvania welcomed Frontier’s two new routes with a cake. The airline now operates from both its home base in Denver, Colorado – 2,375 kilometres away – and Orlando in Florida, 1,370 kilometres to the south. While AirTran currently competes on the Orlando route, the airline will drop its services later in the year.

Frontier launches new routes from Denver and Orlando

Thanks to reader Dave Sommers for this photo of Frontier’s arrival in Allentown, which it now serves twice a week from Orlando.

  • Frontier launched five new routes in the last week; two from its Denver (DEN) home in the state of Colorado and three from Orlando, FL (MCO). One of the Orlando routes, to Bloomington, IL (BMI), faces no direct competition; however, this is the result of Southwest/AirTran pulling out of the same route. Indirect competition on the route comes from Allegiant Air at Orlando Sanford; a route launched only days before Frontier.
