Just over a month ago, Frontier announced a slew of new routes, mainly out of Ohio and the East Coast. Today, they’re announcing routes based on the other side of the country: Colorado Springs, CO and Las Vegas, NV. It’s interesting to see them swing back into Colorado Springs, especially since the last time they added a bunch of routes (including some of the same below!) it failed pretty spectacularly.

Colorado Springs, CO
Per the Frontier press release, the new routes are:
- Chicago, IL (ORD) – 1x daily service, starts 6/12
- Los Angeles, CA (LAX) – 4 weekly service, starts 6/12
- San Diego, CA – 1x daily service, starts 6/10
- San Francisco, CA (SFO) – 3x weekly service, starts 6/11
- Washington, D.C. (IAD) – 1x daily service, starts 6/10
The other two routes, Tampa (TPA) and Ft. Myers (RSW), were announced, but no details were provided. All services listed as listed as seasonal, not year-round.
Las Vegas, NV
Las Vegas sees fewer routes than Colorado Springs, but definitely some interesting adds. It looks like they’re going after the Allegiant model in Bismarck and Sioux Falls. The adds are:
- Bismarck, ND (BIS) – 2x weekly service, starts 6/11
- Indianapolis, IN (IND) – 3x weekly service, starts 6/16
- Sioux Falls, SD (FSD) – 4x weekly service, starts 6/12
- Washington, D.C. (IAD) – 1x daily service, starts 6/16
All services listed as listed as year-round, not seasonal.

Frontier is offering special introductory fares as low as $29 on these new routes as of today at www.flyfrontier.com. For example:
- COS to/from LAX – $39

What to know
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.
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.

You miserable so and so…. ya broke our hearts — twice. Offering tantalizing, convenient and VERY popular service to my two favorite under-served airports, Wilmington (DE) and most especially the idyllic Shenandoah (SHD) airport…. (both airports have free parking)
But then, never mind local support, ya jilted us, threw us aside, declared to the world that you were favoring the “big” mega city airports over country fare. How’s that working out for ya up there in Dulles land?
Memo then to all those “excited” about “new frontiers” coming to your fav. local airport…. Don’t get too attached.
Frontier has some serious commitment issues. Like Trump. Say one thing one day…. then leave ya hangin’ the next, while moving on to the next conquest. Never buy a Frontier ticket without a backup plan.

This is the Frontier MO. Start, stop, start, stop. A couple times a week can hardly be called “service”. After years of acquiring Ascent, Summit and Elite tier status Frontier went from 85 flights a day in Milwaukee to one. Now they’ve come back to a couple. They use political grants and tax breaks to start services and as soon as they expire they leave. See: Colorado Springs several years ago. Their problem is not enough planes to compete with the big boys so they go to a city 3-4 times a week and call that “service”. They are looking for the once a year family vacation traveler who doesn’t know any better. And that’s what they get. I wouldn’t take a free ticket on them.
