Frontier Airlines to add the Miami – Atlanta route

Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) is adding routes in places you would not expect but bound to cause a stir. While Frontier Airlines downsizes its Denver hub due to rising costs it is adding another route from Miami International Airport which is also high cost. The ultra low fare airline has announced it will operate daily nonstop flights between Miami and Atlanta starting on March 6.

In December Frontier launched operations from MIA to Chicago (O’Hare), Denver, New York (LaGuardia), Philadelphia and Washington (Dulles). Now Frontier serves some of the top domestic markets from MIA. Is Spirit Airlines far behind?
