Frontier Airlines to launch six new nonstop routes at TPA

Tampa International Airport is delivering record passenger numbers this year, including a 9 percent increase in domestic passengers, and the expansion of Frontier Airlines is an important piece of that story,
Chris Minner, Executive VP of Marketing at TPA

(August 8, 2018) Frontier Airlines today announced it will launch seasonal service from Tampa International Airport to six new cities this winter: Grand Rapids, Michigan; Syracuse, N.Y.; Greenville/Spartanburg, S.C.; Charlotte, N.C.; Portland, Maine; and Norfolk, Virginia. The addition of these destinations includes service to four new markets for TPA – Portland, Norfolk, Greenville/Spartanburg and Syracuse – and brings the total number of TPA’s Frontier flights to 19, solidifying Frontier’s position as the fastest-growing airline at the Airport. 

In the past two years, the airline has more than doubled its TPA passengers from 438,131 to more than 1 million annual passengers. It has also more than quadrupled its number of flights, from six during the summer of 2016 to this year’s 19, which include the airline’s seasonal flights that will launch in November. The biggest jump has taken place over the last year, which saw an 83 percent increase in Frontier passengers flying through TPA.

“Tampa International Airport is delivering record passenger numbers this year, including a 9 percent increase in domestic passengers, and the expansion of Frontier Airlines is an important piece of that story,” TPA Executive Vice President of Marketing Chris Minner said. “We’re pleased to offer our passengers even more low-fare nonstop flights to families, friends and businesses all over the country. We look forward to making room for more growth in the coming months and years.”

Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry, the Airbus A320 family of nearly 80 jet aircraft with plans to purchase 200 more, and is known for its affordable fares. Celebratory introductory fares for the new seasonal TPA flights will start as low as $29.

“The response from the Tampa Bay area community to our Low Fares Done Right mission has been tremendous,” said Daniel Shurz, Senior Vice President, Commercial of Frontier Airlines. “With this winter’s schedule, we will offer a great range of destinations to customers from Tampa.”
