Frontier Airlines grows domestic network with seven more routes

Cincinnati Airport celebrated with a ribbon cutting the opening of Frontier Airlines’ new connection to Minneapolis-St. Paul, while passengers on the inaugural flight to New York LaGuardia promoted the new route by dressing up, with a second ribbon cutting also taking place. Both routes, which launched 21 April, will face direct competition from Delta Air Lines, while American Airlines also links Cincinnati to LaGuardia.

  • Frontier Airlines has expanded its US domestic offering this week by launching seven routes. All of the sectors launched by the ULCC are already served by another airline, with the most competed airport pairing being the 940-kilometre connection between Cincinnati (CVG) and New York LaGuardia (LGA). The link between the two airports is also flown by Delta Air Lines and American Airlines, which combined operate 55 weekly flights. The average sector length of the seven routes launched is 1,316-kilometres, while the average weekly frequency is four.
