On May 28, representatives from Frontier Airlines, Miami-Dade County and Jamaica hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Frontier’s inaugural departure from Miami International Airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Frontier is now flying three times per week to Montego Bay. The launch of Montego Bay service and four more routes by Frontier later this summer will bring its network at MIA to a total of 33 destinations – its highest number ever at the airport.
“Congratulations to Frontier on launching the first of many new routes it will begin serving at MIA this summer, which will help to further strengthen the ongoing recovery of our local tourism industry,” Daniella Levine Cava, Mayor of Miami-Dade County.
“I am also extremely pleased to see additional flights to and from Jamaica, a country with which we share so many cultural ties, and one of the busiest destinations for our residents and visitors to Miami-Dade County”.
In addition to Montego Bay, Frontier will start serving the following routes from MIA this summer: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (5x weekly) on June 10; Nassau, Bahamas (4x weekly) on June 24; San Jose, Costa Rica (2x weekly) on July 2; and St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles (1x weekly) on July 10.
“We applaud Frontier for its robust and ongoing expansion of flights at MIA. Jamaica generates a total of more than half a million passengers to and from MIA annually, which makes it our 13th-busiest market,” Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO.
“We look forward to welcoming even more of those passengers back to our airport, thanks to this additional service to Montego Bay by Frontier”.
