Frontier Airlines Denver to Pensacola
Frontier Airlines introduced Pensacola to its route map on 22 April. To celebrate, the Florida airport held a major celebration to greet its newest airline, including two fantastic cakes to commemorate the first service from Denver, while also choosing the opportunity to push the airline’s route from Chicago O’Hare which begins in May. Seen posing with the cakes, alongside the chocolate moose mascot, are Eric Olson, Pensacola City Administrator and Jonathan Freed, Director of Corporate Communications at Frontier Airlines. Denver flights face no direct competition.
- Frontier Airlines has now added Pensacola (PNS) in Florida to its route map, commencing a 1,894-kilometre link from Denver (DEN). Launched on 22 April, the carrier will operate the city pair three times weekly, with no other carrier presently flying between the two airports. From 12 May the carrier will add a second connection into Pensacola from Chicago O’Hare. That twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) service will go head-to-head with United Airlines’ 15 times weekly operation when it launches. Overall, this means that Frontier now serves seven airports in Florida. This tally is better than that of rival ULCC Spirit Airlines (three Florida airports served), with Frontier now serving the same number of destinations as Allegiant Air in the state.
