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?

Frontier Airlines to cut flights and jobs at Denver International Airport

Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) is planning to cut the number of flights and jobs at its Denver International Airport hub according to The Denver Post.

CEO Dave Siegel has told employees that increased taxes and landing fees has made the DEN hub unprofitable. In the past year the airline has been adding routes at other locations including Trenton and Cleveland as we have reported.

Siegel sites the 30 percent increase in landing fees over the past three years as the main culprit in making DEN connections unprofitable.

Currently the airline operates 85 daily flights but this will decrease to around 70 in January according to the report.

Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) has announced plans to add twice-weekly service between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) beginning in December according to Miami International Airport.

The new nonstop Miami-Washington D.C. service is scheduled to begin on December 21, the same day that Frontier will launch nonstop flights from MIA to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Flights to Washington Dulles will operate on Thursdays and Sundays, using the carrier’s 168-seat Airbus A320 aircraft (above). On December 20, Frontier will launch nonstop service from Miami to Denver, Philadelphia and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

Previously in September, Frontier announced it was coming to Miami starting on December 20 with new routes operating to Chicago (O’Hare), Denver, New York (LaGuardia) and Philadelphia. Washington Dulles is a new addition to the original announcement.
