- Frontier Airlines commenced flights between Denver (DEN) and Branson (BKG) on 13 June. The ULCC will offer three weekly flights on the 1,067-kilometre US domestic service, with it scheduled to use its fleet of A320s on the city pair. “It is an honour to welcome Frontier Airlines and the first customers to Branson,” said Jeff Bourk, Branson Airport Executive Director. “We know people want to come here from all over the US, but without good, affordable air service, people need to work really hard to get here. Frontier Airlines changed that with this launch.” No other airline presently connects the two airports. This becomes only the second scheduled service at the Missouri airport, with the other being provided by ViaAir which offers a summer seasonal route from Austin with four weekly flights on its ERJ 145s. A third carrier will operate flights from the airport later this year, with Silver Airways scheduled to launch service from Branson on 30 August with daily non-stop flights from Chicago O’Hare, Houston Intercontinental and New Orleans.
