Just in time for winter, Frontier Airlines is launching new nonstop seasonal service to Florida from two Midwestern cities and reinstating seasonal Florida service from three others beginning Dec. 15, 2011, and continuing into April 2012.
The new nonstop seasonal service will be offered in three markets:
Des Moines, Iowa (DSM) to/from Orlando, Fla. (MCO)
Des Moines, Iowa (DSM) to/from Tampa, Fla. (TPA)
Madison, Wis. (MSN) to/from Orlando, Fla. (MCO)
Additionally, Frontier will reinstate nonstop seasonal service in four markets.
Kansas City, Mo. (MCI) to/from Ft. Myers, Fla. (RSW)
Milwaukee (MKE) to/from Ft. Myers, Fla. (RSW)
Omaha, Neb. (OMA) to/from Orlando, Fla. (MCO)
Omaha, Neb. (OMA) to/from Tampa, Fla. (TPA)
Omaha-Orlando service, which has operated as Saturday-only service since October, will expand to five times weekly. All routes will operate a reduced schedule Jan. 6 through Feb. 15, 2012.
Frontier’s service to family-friendly Florida destinations includes the only service from Des Moines to the most convenient airports in Orlando and Tampa, as well as the only nonstop service from both Madison and Omaha to Florida. Service will be provided on 99-seat Embraer 190 aircraft, which feature no middle seats and available STRETCH seating with up to 7 inches of additional legroom on every flight.
Introductory fares beginning at $119* each way are offered on most of the routes. The fares are available at FrontierAirlines.com through Dec. 15, 2011, for travel through Feb. 15, 2012.
Frontier will also introduce seasonal service between Kansas City and Orlando on Jan. 5, 2012, and between Kansas City and Tampa on Feb. 15, 2012.
