Ultra low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines will launch new service to Providence, R.I., and Islip, Long Island, N.Y. beginning on August 14 and August 16 respectively.
This is the first time Frontier has flown to either city and marks Frontier’s first entry into the New England market.
The Denver-based airline will launch service between Providence and both Denver and Orlando. It will be the only airline offering nonstop service between Denver and Providence.
From Islip, Frontier will launch new service to Orlando. Frontier will also start new service between Las Vegas and Raleigh/Durham, N.C. and will resume service between Las Vegas and Miami.
Previously, Frontier announced that it would launch 11 new year-round and seasonal routes in June and July in 10 cities across the country. Cities receiving the new service include Bismarck, N.D.; Chicago; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; San Diego; San Francisco; Sioux Falls S.D.; and Washington (Dulles). Later this fall, Frontier will add new service between Colorado Springs and both Fort Myers and Tampa, Fla.
But Frontier has also announced it is canceling its service between Miami and Havana as of June 4.
Frontier’s entry into the Providence market comes on the heels on Norwegian Airlines’ launch of its low-fare transatlantic service linking Providence to cities in Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland. Norwegian begins its first scheduled flight on June 16.
Norwegian is also set to start transatlantic flights from Hartford, Conn., and Newburgh, N.Y. this summer.
