Frontier Airlines Denver to Jackson
Frontier Airlines launched flights to Jackson in Mississippi from Denver on 13 October, with the airline also poised to begin operations to the latter airport from Orlando on 22 October. To celebrate the occasion of the ULCC’s arrival, Jackson commissioned three brilliant cakes, with one depicting the Mile High Stadium in Denver, while another showcased the many attractions of Orlando. Finally a central three-tier cake was the main event showstopper. The lower tier was dedicated to Mississippi, the middle tier Frontier Airlines, and the top a suitcase encouraging passengers to take advantage of the airline’s ultra-low fares. Cutting the cake is Commissioner Lee A. Bernard Jr, Vice Chairman of Jackson Airport’s Board of Commissioners. Frontier Airlines will operate both routes twice-weekly using its fleet of A320s.
- Frontier Airlines introduced the state of Mississippi to its network on 13 October, the day which saw it inaugurate flights between Denver (DEN) and Jackson (JAN). During the first week of operation, Frontier will offer services on Wednesday and Saturday, before switching the twice-weekly service to a Mondays and Fridays operation on 22 October, with this also being the date which will see the airline begin a twice-weekly service from Orlando. The ULCC will operate the 1,552-kilometre hop between Denver and Jackson using its A320s, with this also being the aircraft of choice to serve the 943-kilometre link from Orlando when it launches next week. Neither route is expected to face direct competition, although ViaAir links Jackson with Orlando Sanford four times weekly.
