Regional officials and business leaders celebrated the announcement Aug. 28 with an official press conference. Here, Frontier confirmed the non-stop services will begin in November. The addition of flights to Harlingen represents the 100th city in the airline’s network.
Frontier is currently offering a special introductory, one-way fare of $49 to each city at flyfrontier.com through today. Service to Chicago O’Hare will be on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while Denver service is available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
More than 150 were in attendance, with a consensus of the addition of the airline being a win for all of South Texas. VIA Aviation Director Marv Esterly added Frontier expanding in the Valley is vital.
“This could be huge for south Texas. We just have to make it work,” he says. “And when it does, Frontier is prepared to add more flights.”
Frontier Airlines is the fifth U.S. airline to service the Valley with Delta, Southwest, Sun Country and United.
