Welcome to Providence Frontier Airlines! Ground staff at Providence Airport wave-off the first passengers bound for Denver on Frontier’s new service linking the state capitals of Rhode Island and Colorado. The carrier also introduced flights to Providence from Orlando this week. Both routes will be flown daily according to OAG schedules. For those of you with impeccable vision, you may be able to spot the top of a Norwegian 737-800 tailfin, another new carrier to Providence in S17 with its transatlantic routes from Edinburgh, Dublin, Cork, Shannon, Belfast International and Bergen.
- Frontier Airlines introduced the state capital of Rhode Island to its network this week, with the ULCC inaugurating flights from Orlando (MCO) and Denver (DEN) to Providence (PVD) on 14 August. Both routes will be served by the airline daily, with services from Florida facing direct competition from Southwest Airlines and JetBlue Airways. Later this year, Frontier will expand further from Providence, with the carrier scheduled to launch routes to Miami, New Orleans, Southwest Florida and Tampa in October for the start of the winter season. Along with welcoming Providence to its network this week, Frontier has also expanded from Las Vegas (LAS), adding Des Moines (DSM), Memphis (MEM) and Raleigh-Durham (RDU) to its Nevadan network. The average sector length of Frontier’s five new sectors this week is 2,398 kilometres. See how Providence and Memphis airports FTWAs compare to others from around the world.
