Frontier Airlines shuffles into Buffalo

Frontier Airlines Tampa to Buffalo

Tampa Airport once again got creative with its baking marketing to celebrate Frontier Airlines’ new service to Buffalo. Seen posing with the Niagara Falls-inspired cake are: Christopher Minner, EVP of Marketing and Real Estate, Tampa Airport; Richard Oliver, Corporate Communications, Frontier Airlines; and Joe Lopano, CEO of Tampa Airport. Oliver and Lopano also carried out the ribbon cutting ceremony. Flights on the route will operate four times weekly.

Celebrations were also held in Buffalo to welcome Frontier Airlines’ new service from Tampa on 6 December. Among the highlights of the first flight ceremony was a ribbon cutting, while passengers were all given decorative biscuits. Flights from Miami, Orlando and Southwest Florida were inaugurated on 10 December, while services from Denver will begin on 9 April next year. Photo credit: Joe Gerardi.
