Beginning August 19, Frontier will offer non-stop flights to Atlanta; Orlando; Tampa; Charlotte and Minneapolis/St Paul.
Services to Chicago-O’Hare; Cincinnati; Detroit; Fort Lauderdale; Las Vegas; Memphis; Fort Myers; St Louis and St Augustine/Jacksonville are due to begin on September 8.
Frontier’s commercial SVP, Daniel Shurz, said that the airline “is committed to offering customers Low Fares Done Right and that means offering choices.”
President and CEO of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Jack Potter, called the addition of Frontier “a significant and positive development for passengers interested in additional low-cost, domestic travel option” from Dulles.
Operated by an A320, Frontier’s new services via Washington Dulles coincide with recent upgrades to the airport including increased parking facilities, concourse refurbishment and a number of new F&B and retail options set to open throughout 2014.
Frontier is currently refocusing its operation to become an ultra-LCC and has announced a spate of new appointments in recent weeks to further that goal including new airline president, Barry Biffle and CFO, James Dempsey.
