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.

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.
