Ultra-low-cost airline Frontier continued on its growth streak last week, adding new routes and flights at Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson and Cincinnati.
At ATL, Frontier launched nonstop service to New York LaGuardia, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Minneapolis and Cincinnati.
The carrier now flies to 16 cities non-stop from Atlanta, and officials told local media that they see room for even more new routes there. Rival Spirit Airlines has also been adding Atlanta markets in recent months, making the busy airport a new battleground between ultra-low-cost carriers and the dominant Delta and Southwest.
Atlanta-area travelers can benefit from ultra-low fares on the upstart companies — Frontier was promoting one-way fares of $19 to $99 on its new routes — if they’re willing to pay all the ancillary fees.
Besides new Cincinnati-Atlanta service, meanwhile, Frontier also started flying last week between Cincinnati-Ft. Myers, and boosted schedules on other Cincinnati routes, increasing Ft. Lauderdale service from three flights a week to seven, Orlando from four a week to seven, and Las Vegas from one a day to two.
