Frontier Airlines launches five routes to Florida and two to Mexico

Frontier Airlines has new route frenzy

On 31 October Frontier Airlines commenced a new connection between Cincinnati and Tampa, a route which will be flown four times weekly. To celebrate, the latter airport commissioned this enormous cake in the form of the Great American Ball Park, home of the first professional baseball team in the world. Posing with the calorific wonder are Tampa Airport’s Marketing Team. Talking of baseball, congratulations to the Chicago Cubs on their historic World Series victory yesterday beating the Cleveland Indians 4-3. They last won the ultimate prize in baseball in 1908.

  • Frontier Airlines commenced seven new routes between 30 and 31 October, including two new international links from Chicago O’Hare (ORD) to San Jose del Cabo (SJD) and Puerto Vallarta (PVR) in Mexico. Both of these routes will face direct competition. The remaining five routes launched by the carrier this week are US domestic services, all involving airports in Florida, with only the link between Trenton (TTN) and Punta Gorda (PGD) facing an incumbent. The five US domestic routes have an average sector length of 1,743 kilometres and an average weekly frequency of 4.2. Vote for Tampa Airport’s cake in this week’s competition.
