Frontier to quadruple its Miami flight schedule this autumn

Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines will expand its schedule at Miami International Airport in November by a total of 28 weekly flights and six additional routes, bringing its total weekly departures to 57.

Its new Miami schedule will include three weekly flights to Hartford/Springfield and three weekly flights to San Juan beginning 14 November, in addition to four weekly flights to Boston starting 15 November – three first-time routes by Frontier from MIA.

Frontier will also launch four daily flights to Detroit starting 15 November, as well as bring back daily service to New York LaGuardia and Chicago O’Hare on 14 November.

Today’s news comes on the heels of last month’s announcement that Frontier will begin daily service from MIA to Las Vegas on 10 September, followed by four weekly flights to both Cincinnati and Cleveland on 10 October.

“We are proud to count Frontier among our busiest airlines, and we look forward to welcoming their additional expansion to more destinations this fall, including three routes previously not served by Frontier at MIA,” said Lester Sola, MIA director and chief executive officer.

Frontier currently operates 14 weekly flights from MIA: daily flights to Denver; four weekly flights to Philadelphia; and three weekly flights to Atlanta.

After launching into the Miami market in 2014, Frontier has become MIA’s fifth-busiest passenger airline, carrying more than 725,000 total passengers in 2018.

“We’re excited to continue our growth in Miami with the only ultra-low-cost, non-stop flights to four new cities,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial for Frontier Airlines. “South Florida is known for its unique culture, beaches and world-class dining and these new affordable flights will make it possible for even more people to take a vacation to this vibrant area.”
