Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) announced today it will add new year-round, nonstop service between Orlando, Forida (MCO) and Bloomington/Normal, Illinois (BMI). Additionally, the airline will increase its existing nonstop service between Orlando and Madison, Wisconsin (MSN) from seasonal to year-round and will upgrade the aircraft used on the route from a 99-seat Embraer ERJ 190 operated by Republic Airlines (2nd) to a 138-seat Airbus A19. The Bloomington/Normal service, also operated with Airbus A319s, will operate three days each week, begins on May 25, 2012; the year-round, twice-weekly Madison service will launch on May 27, 2012.
The news of the two new routes comes on the heels of an announcement yesterday by Frontier of new year-round, nonstop service between Orlando and both Allentown, Pennsylvania (ABE) and Harrisburg, Pa. (MDT) beginning in May. Frontier also recently announced that it would begin service between Bloomington/Normal and Denver in May.
This brings the total number of Orlando destinations to 10.
