Frontier Airlines is expanding its service between Raleigh-Durham International Airport and six new cities, starting this winter. The addition of these destinations, which includes flights to Jamaica, means the airline will serve 27 cities nonstop from the Triangle. Schedules and fares will be released in the next few weeks.
The new cities from Raleigh/Durham include the following international destinations: Cancun, Montego Bay, and Punta Cana. Frontier is also adding domestic service to Fort Myers, West Palm Beach, and Phoenix. Frontier will be the only airline offering nonstop service on four of these six routes. The carrier will operate these new routes with the Airbus A320 family of aircraft.
Following is a summary of the new service:

Frontier Airlines (2nd) and Volaris announce a new codeshare agreement which will provide millions of people access to affordable fares between the U.S. and Mexico. This first-ever codeshare agreement between uniquely branded ULCCs will allow both carriers to sell tickets and connecting itineraries on the airlines’ combined networks.
Subject to regulatory approval by authorities in the United States and Mexico, the codeshare routes will be available for purchase this Spring. This agreement will allow Frontier to place and sell tickets with its code (F9) on Volaris operated flights and for Volaris to place its code (Y4) on Frontier operated flights. Once the codeshare is in place passengers will enjoy a seamless low-fare travel experience traveling on Frontier and Volaris.
Beginning in Spring 2018, flights will be available directly through Frontier on the company’s website flyfrontier.com, its mobile application and its call center. Flights will also be available through third party distributers including online travel agencies. Flights also will be available directly through Volaris’ website volaris.com and mobile application.
A natural fit between the carriers’ networks already exists with each serving more than 20 of the same markets. In addition, both carriers fly Airbus A320 aircraft. Frontier operates a fleet of 78 aircraft with 199 additional aircraft on order and Volaris operates a fleet of 71 with 128 additional aircraft on order.
