Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines today announced two new nonstop routes from Miami International Airport (MIA) – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands – plus the resumption of flights to Las Vegas beginning in March 2021. Twice-weekly Punta Cana (PUJ) and St. Thomas (STT) service will begin on March 8 and March 7, respectively, and daily Las Vegas (LAS) service will also resume on March 7.
“We eagerly look forward to welcoming additional service by Frontier Airlines to these two popular Caribbean destinations,” said Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO. “We deeply appreciate their growing commitment to serving Miami-Dade County and to safely helping our passengers return to air travel.”
The announcement comes one month after Frontier rolled out plans for service to six other routes from MIA. Frontier began three weekly flights to Santo Domingo on December 17. That week, the airline also announced that it would begin serving the following routes: daily service to Orlando beginning in February; four weekly flights to Cancun starting in March; three weekly flights to Guatemala City, four weekly flights to San Salvador, and four weekly flights to Ontario, California all starting in April. Frontier’s Ontario service will be an entirely new route for MIA. In total, the new routes will expand Frontier’s network at MIA to a total of 30 destinations.
