Frontier Airlines to open a crew base at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport with new routes

Frontier Airlines today announced it will open a new crew base at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in May 2023.

The base is expected to employ up to 120 pilots and 220 flight attendants within its first year of operation. Combined with airport positions, the airline is expected to generate more than $78 million annually in local wages with further growth anticipated in the coming years.

Frontier, which has been the fastest growing carrier at DFW since 2019, also provided a preview today of five new routes from DFW that will go on sale next week, including nonstop service to Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ). The other new nonstop routes include Baltimore (BWI), New York-La Guardia (LGA), Raleigh-Durham (RDU) and Orange County, Calif. (SNA). The new service, which is scheduled to begin in spring 2023, will bring the airline’s total number of nonstop routes from DFW to 19, making Frontier the airport’s third largest carrier based on destinations served.
