Comments from Airline, City Officials
Frontier Airlines Vice President of Commercial Daniel Shurz commented, “Atlanta is one of Frontier’s fastest growing markets….We are proud to connect Atlanta to 10 international destinations and 28 U.S. destinations. We are working hard to make our already robust network at ATL even bigger and, in fact, by summer, Atlanta will be our third largest operation. We know those in the Atlanta area appreciate Frontier’s ‘Low Fares Done Right,’ and now they can take advantage of even more affordable and convenient options when planning their next vacation.”
Atlanta Hartsfield Deputy General Manager and Chief Commercial Officer Jai Ferrell commented, “We are pleased to partner with Frontier Airlines with these five new nonstop routes…Additional service and new destinations expand connectivity for our passengers and illustrate our mission to deliver excellence while connecting our community to the world.”
This new expansion comes as earlier this week Frontier announced that it would be cutting 14 routes from its network after initially planning to increase capacity by 20% next year. The airline cuts routes that were popular among legacy carriers. The Denver-based airline also announced that it would pull out of Rochester, New York, on May 8th.
