Apparently, it is not just the geese that will fly to the south this winter. This Tuesday, the Denver based Frontier Airlines revealed that it will begin nonstop flights from Philadelphia to seven southern cities including Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Cancun, Mexico in December. With the next springtide, it will also start flying to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago and North Carolina.
Not just Philadelphia, Frontier spreading out to Miami is a big move making it the only big U.S. low fare airline to fly to the city. Other U.S. low-cost carriers including Virgin America, Spirit, and JetBlue majorly fly to Fort Lauderdale which is 30 miles North of Miami.
The airline will begin offering four new nonstop destinations from Miami International Airport in December.
Frontier stopped flying out of Philly only last year which happened shortly after it started rolling flights from the Trenton-Mercer Airport. With the introduction of 19th nonstop flight from Trenton to Bahamas, Frontier is in full swing and does not seem to worry the airport officials.
The airline which has also been ranked in the top 10 prompt airlines will also spread out services at O'Hare International Airport. The low cost carrier will add four nonstop routes to the existing seven scheduled to fly from O'Hare.
Frontier intends to expand to Philadelphia, Miami, Charlotte and Chicago, all of which are focal points for American Airlines and merger partner US Airways.
David Siegel, CEO, Frontier stated that this expansion will commove the market with low fares and better service. After its acquisition by Indigo Partners last year, Frontier is being remodeled as an ultra low cost carrier just like Spirit Airlines. Frontier Airlines aspires to strengthen its relationship with customers by ensuring that the employees are pleasant and prompt.
For updating and refreshing the brand, the colorful animals including grizzly bear, cougar, rabbit and lynx adorning the tail will also be getting bigger in future aircrafts extending to the rear of the fuselage.
