Frontier Airlines Now Second Largest Carrier at Raleigh-Durham in Destinations Served
Frontier Airlines announced 6 new routes from Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) Thursday morning, making it the second largest carrier at the airport in terms of number of destinations served. Frontier’s new destinations include Buffalo, Houston, Milwaukee, New Orleans, San Antonio, and San Juan, PR. The carrier now serves a total of 15 destinations at RDU, putting it ahead of Southwest Airlines. Delta is still the largest carrier at the airport.
Service to Houston and Milwaukee begins on April 8, service to New Orleans and San Antonio begins on April 9, and service to Buffalo and San Juan begins on April 11. Furthermore, Frontier is expanding its Las Vegas service from RDU to year-round. All routes will be served by either Frontier’s A320 or A319 jet aircraft.
Frontier currently has more than 200 of the A320 aircraft on order to grow and modernize its fleet. With this announcement, the airlines continue to deliver on its mission to provide affordable and accessible air travel to 90 percent of America.
To promote the new services, Frontier is offering introductory fares from $29 each way. It is also giving local Raleigh-Durham customers a chance to win two round-trip tickets to one of the 15 destinations it serves.
Tyri Squyres, VP of Marketing for Frontier, mentioned that the greater Raleigh and Durham communities have responded well to Frontier’s low-fares philosophy. Frontier allows its passengers to customize their travel to their needs and budget – not offering the complimentary carry-on bag, checked bag, or seat selection.
“We are proud to grow our commitment to this community and bring even more low fares to the area with now 15 non-stop, low fare destination options. We appreciate the continued support of the airport and the community and are proud to serve RDU with not only some of the lowest fares in the industry but also a good travel experience,” Squyres said.
