Only a few weeks after Delta Airlines made headlines for pulling its hub out of Memphis, low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines has announced that it will bring its service to Memphis International Airport in March of next year.
The Denver-based airline will offer four non-stop flights to Denver, as well as open connections to San Francisco, Seattle/Tacoma, Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland, and six other western cities.
“Today’s exciting announcement from Frontier Airlines is the beginning of a new era of affordable airfare choices for our passengers,” said Jack Sammons, chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority Board of Commissioners. “I am confident Frontier’s direct service to Denver will be warmly embraced by passengers in our region.”
Frontier is currently promoting discount fares as low as $69 for flights booked on their website through October 12th.
