Frontier Airlines is expanding its service to 21 additional airports, including Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
That service to and from Frontier’s hub at Denver International Airport will start in the spring of next year, officials at the Fresno airport announced.
An exact start date for the service and a flight schedule has yet to be announced.
“We are excited to be included in Frontier’s major network expansion and look forward to welcoming the airline to our healthy mix of air service options through Fresno,” said Kevin Meikle, the city’s director of aviation.
“The addition of a low-cost carrier in our market will help foster airfare competition and provide travelers with more airline choices to Frontier’s major network hub in Denver and to connections beyond.”
To mark announcement, Frontier is offering a limited-time fare sale with rates starting at $39 each way between Oct. 5 and March 8, but some days aren’t included, the low-cost carrier said in a press release.
The route expansion also will extend to Mineta San Jose International Airport, which will connect Frontier flights with airports in Denver and Las Vegas.
“We are proud to announce the nationwide expansion of our unique brand of low fares done right, which will empower millions more people to afford to fly,” Barry Biffle, president and CEO of Frontier, said in a press release. “These new flights will allow us to serve even more of America and make flying a truly affordable option.”
The change elevates the number of cities Frontier flies to 82 and adds 85 new routes for the airline.
This will be the third time Frontier has entered the Fresno market, previously pulling out twice before, according to published reports.
