“Our network continues to expand in markets where people want to fly,” said Josh Flyr, Vice President – Network and Revenue at Frontier Airlines. “Customers in both Providence and Islip will now have a new low-cost option, and with The WORKS and The PERKS, we offer the best value in U.S. air travel.”

Both packages allow one checked bag and one carry on, the best available seat including seating in Stretch and Exit rows, and priority boarding. The WORKS package also makes flights fully refundable up to 24 hours in advance and eliminates change fees.
