Frontier Airlines adds five new routes at Washington Dulles

  • Frontier Airlines, which on 19 August opened a new base at the busiest airport in the Washington metropolitan area, continued to expand its presence at Washington Dulles, VA (IAD) with another five new links on 8 September, all of which are operated by the LCC’s 168-seat A320s. Notably, the average weekly frequency across the five new routes is 4.6. With the longest route being the 3,325-kilometre sector to Las Vegas, NV (LAS), and the shortest being inaugurated to Detroit, MI (DTW) at 616 kilometres, Frontier will face competition on three of the five new additions from a mix of Delta Air Lines and United Airlines.
