Frontier Adds Four Las Vegas Routes This Summer

Frontier Airlines is launching nonstop service to four additional cities from Las Vegas’s Harry Reid International Airport. The announcement comes as travel begins to take off for the summer season.

Beginning August 9, Frontier will begin flying daily routes to and from Baltimore, Buffalo, Hartford, and Kansas City.

The Denver-based ultra-low-cost carrier is becoming a very popular choice amongst guests traveling to and from Las Vegas. The carrier will now serve 57 cities from the airport, only behind Southwest Airlines, which serves 63 cities, and Allegiant, serving 61 cities.

Las Vegas remains Frontier’s third most popular city behind its Denver base and Orlando.

Frontier will not only compete head-to-head with Southwest Airlines on both the Baltimore and Kansas City routes but also with Spirit who is in a bidding war with JetBlue for Frontier.

Additionally, Frontier will compete with Southwest once per week round trip Buffalo trip. Currently, Frontier remains the only carrier with nonstop service to and from Hartford. Introductory fares for the routes start as low as $89 to Kansas City and $99 to Baltimore, Buffalo, and Hartford.

The carrier is currently in a bidding war with competitor Jetblue for a merger with Spirit Airlines. In early February, Frontier Airlines and Spirit Airlines announced a $6.6 billion merger that would give Frontier a 51.5% controlling interest in a combined airline that will become the fifth-largest carrier in the country and the largest ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC).

Spirit Airlines announced on Wednesday that it has decided to delay a meeting that was due to take place this Friday where shareholders were to vote on the proposed merger with Frontier.
