There’s no way around it: Frontier has been growing like crazy this year, with numerous additions across the country:

By my count, those previous announcements are roughly 55 route pairs, which for any airline, would be impressive growth. That’s not enough for the new Frontier, which seems to be hell-bent on out-Spiriting Spirit. Today, Frontier showed us that they’re not messing around, adding an insane 21 cities to their map and an even more insane 85 new route pairs.

Frontier’s route-a-palooza

There are so many adds, the only reasonable way to convey them is in a table. Apologies in advance for the data dump. Courtesy of Frontier’s website, here are the 85 routes being added to Frontier’s network over the next few months:

OK, now the CliffsNotes

That’s a crazy list, so I’m not surprised if you didn’t read the whole thing! From my perspective, here are some highlights:

  • Impressive growth in Austin, Denver, Islip, Miami, Orlando, and Tampa.
  • While Frontier is adding 21 cities, 16 of them were previously served by Frontier. Buffalo, NY; Charleston, SC; Jacksonville, FL; Ontario, CA; and Pensacola, FL are brand new cities for the carrier.
  • Many of these routes operate at sub-daily frequency, but some, like Islip to a few Florida routes, are daily and double daily.
  • Nonstop routes nearly double by Summer of 2018 to 314
  • Total routes (including connections) grow to well over 1000 by Summer 2018 (more than double the current number of total routes)

A Fare Sale?

You bet! Doing a quick scan of Frontier’s website, here are six flights that come in at UNDER $25 each way:

Remember, Frontier charges for bags and seats, which can really increase the price of your ticket. Even still, with those low fares, these tickets plus extras may still be cheaper than the competition.

Also keep in mind that many of these new flights are sub-daily, which can present a problem when irregular operations hit. You can never plan for something like that, but it’s a good piece of knowledge to tuck away.

Conclusion

This is an incredible day over at Frontier. 85 routes in one announcement is a huge news story, especially when they tout their service being within reach of 90% of the US population. As always, it’s always great when airlines add, rather than take away, routes. Let us know if you’ll be using these new routes out of your hometown.
