"This includes the only nonstop service to Florida from both Madison and Omaha, as well as the only service from Des Moines to the most convenient airports in Orlando and Tampa."

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Midwesterners looking to escape the snow and cold for sun and sand this winter have more reasons than ever to celebrate. Frontier Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:RJET), today announced the launch of new nonstop seasonal service to Florida from two Midwestern cities and the reinstatement of seasonal Florida service from two others.

The new nonstop seasonal service will be offered Dec. 15, 2011 through April 15, 2012 in three markets:

  • Des Moines, Iowa (DSM) to/from Orlando (MCO)
  • Des Moines, Iowa (DSM) to/from Tampa
  • Madison, Wis. (MSN) to/from Orlando (MCO)

Additionally, Frontier will reinstate nonstop seasonal service in three markets during the same timeframe.

  • Milwaukee (MKE) to/from Tampa (TPA)
  • Omaha, Neb. (OMA) to/from Orlando (MCO)
  • Omaha, Neb. (OMA) to/from Tampa (TPA)

Omaha-Orlando service will resume as a Saturday-only service beginning Oct. 8 before expanding to five times weekly in December. All routes except Milwaukee-Tampa will operate a reduced schedule Jan. 6 through Feb. 15, 2012.

“We’re pleased to offer our popular seasonal service from more Midwestern cities than ever to exciting, family-friendly Florida destinations,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s vice president of strategy and planning. “This includes the only nonstop service to Florida from both Madison and Omaha, as well as the only service from Des Moines to the most convenient airports in Orlando and Tampa.”

Service will be provided on 99-seat Embraer 190 aircraft, which feature no middle seats and available STRETCH seating with up to 5 inches of additional legroom on every flight.

Introductory fares are available for most markets, beginning at $99-119 each way. The fares are available at FrontierAirlines.com/introfares through Aug. 22, 2011 for travel Jan. 6 through Feb. 15, 2012.
