Frontier Airlines celebrates the opening of a new crew base at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)

Frontier Airlines is celebrating the opening of a new crew base at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX).

The base will initially employ up to 180 pilots and 275 flight attendants within its first year of operation. Combined with airport-based positions, the airline is expected to contribute more than $118 million in annual wages to the Phoenix-area economy.

The base opening coincides with a series of new routes starting this weekend from PHX. Frontier will launch nonstop service to Philadelphia (PHL), Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood (FLL), Cincinnati (CVG), Detroit (DTW), Orange County, Calif. (SNA), and Portland, Ore. (PDX) between Nov. 5-6. With the addition of six previously announced new routes set to launch later this winter, Frontier will serve 23 nonstop destinations in total from PHX, ranking it among the airport’s largest carriers based on destinations served.
