5 additional non-stop routes to San Juan are included, plus new service to Aguadilla and Ponce
Ultra-low fare carrier Frontier Airlines ( NASDAQ: ULCC ) today announced a major expansion of service to Puerto Rico with new nonstop routes from seven US cities, plus Cancun, beginning in May. As part of the expanded service, Frontier will begin offering flights to Ponce, Puerto Rico for the first time, along with expanded service to San Juan and Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. With the expansion, Frontier will serve more routes to Puerto Rico than any other airline.
The new routes bring the airline’s total number of nonstop flights to Puerto Rico to 19 in a significant growth push designed to meet increased demand among leisure travelers and friends and family visiting and traveling to and from the popular caribbean island. To celebrate, America’s Greenest Airline is offering fares starting at $49.*
Nonstop service will begin in May to Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) from Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW), Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Condado Metropolitan Airport Detroit Wayne Airport (DTW), Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), and Cancun International Airport (CUN). In addition, Frontier will also begin daily one-stop service in May to SJU from Denver International Airport (DEN) via DFW.
Frontier will also launch direct service to Rafael Hernández International Airport in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico (BQN) from Tampa International Airport (TPA) and to Mercedita International Airport in Ponce, Puerto Rico (PSE) from Orlando International Airport (MCO). .
The big expansion of Frontier’s service to Puerto Rico comes the same day that Frontier launches its GoWild! Summer Pass™, which offers exclusive access to unlimited flights between the airline’s US and international destinations from May 2 to September 30, 2023. The pass is available for a limited time at a special introductory price from $399 per person. Terms and Conditions apply. For more information, click here .
“Puerto Rico is a hugely popular destination for leisure travelers, as well as the large population of Puerto Ricans who reside in the US and enjoy coming back to the island to visit friends and family,” said Daniel Shurz, Vice President commercial senior of Frontier Airlines. “It is a fantastic vacation destination with stunning beaches, historical sites and the one-of-a-kind El Yunque National Forest. For those with family and friends on the island, we are offering more options than ever to fly cheaply and conveniently between a multitude of major cities and Puerto Rico.”
“We thank our Frontier partners for once again demonstrating their commitment to our destination,” said Carlos Mercado, executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. “The addition of new non-stop routes between Puerto Rico and seven cities in the United States and Cancun, Mexico, significantly expands the options for visitors to the Island. At the same time, we celebrate the expansion of operations to the Mercedita International Airport in Ponce, which will undoubtedly boost tourist activity and the economy of the southern region.”
“Discover Puerto Rico is pleased to invite Frontier and its passengers to ‘Feel the Heat’ in Puerto Rico,” said Brad Dean, Executive Director of Discover Puerto Rico. “As we come off consecutive record years of tourism to the island, we look forward to continuing our momentum and welcoming more visitors to ‘Live Boricua.’ The increase in flight deals, thanks to our partners at Frontier, serves as another proof point of the travel industry’s belief in Puerto Rico as an unmatched destination, now and in the future.”
Frontier focuses on more than just low fares. The airline offers customers the ability to customize the trip according to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in a low-priced package called WORKS. This package includes reimbursement, carry-on baggage, checked baggage, best available seat, waived change fees, and priority boarding.
The airline’s frequent flyer program, FRONTIER Miles, allows members to enjoy many benefits, as well as the chance to achieve Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family-friendly and the program makes it easy for families to enjoy rewards together, including family mileage accrual. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named because it earns one mile for every mile flown; there are no fun formulas in Frontier. Whether customers travel a little or a lot, they’ll find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.
