Following yesterday’s announcement of Frontier Airlines returning to Wilmington – New Castle, Delaware (ILG) with service to Orlando (also offering $29 introductory fares), today, the airline announced its expansion of service at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) with three new nonstop routes to Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles. With the addition of these new routes, Frontier will now offer 24 nonstop options from PHL.
To celebrate this new service, Frontier is offering introductory fares as low as $29, which are available now online at FlyFrontier.com.
New routes from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL):
Over the last two years, Frontier really has made plenty of positive changes and refreshes to its loyalty program/credit cards, implemented friendlier ticketing fees and polices, and I personally have found that the Discount Den membership really does offer significant savings for a yearly fee of $60.
Frontier’s expansion to major hubs is certainly a good thing, forcing the big players to dominate less and become more competitive. I personally am thrilled with Frontier Airlines’ expansion into my home airport, EWR and was able to take advantage of their $15 introductory fares from Newark to/from Miami. All of my flights on Frontier have been pleasant.
What are your thoughts about Frontier’s expansion into Philadelphia? Will you be taking advantage of any of the introductory fares?
