Frontier Airlines Launches Low-Cost Flights From Charleston, S.C. Fly to Denver and Philadelphia With Fares as Low as $39
Today, Frontier Airlines celebrated the launch of new low-cost, non-stop flights to Denver and Philadelphia from Charleston International Airport. Frontier and airport officials will mark the day with a ribbon cutting ceremony and other festivities at the departure gate. To celebrate the launch of its new service, Frontier is offering fares as low as $39 available at FlyFrontier.com.
"Today we introduce a new, more affordable way to travel to and from Charleston,” said Eric Engel, Sales Manager for Frontier Airlines "We’re offering amazing low fares and a reliable, friendly service that allows people to customize their travel experience to their needs and their budget. This empowers more people than ever before to fly. This is what our Low Fares Done Right philosophy is all about.”
The start of these low-cost, non-stop flights comes just two weeks after the carrier announced additional routes in Charleston. By this summer, Frontier will operate to five non-stop destinations. Flights to Austin and Trenton, N.J. will start in April with service to Chicago-O’Hare beginning in May. When service starts on all routes, Frontier will operate the only non-stop flights between Charleston and Austin as well as on the only non-stop flights to Trenton, N.J. which offers convenient access to the Greater Philadelphia area.
“We’re excited to have Frontier Airlines join us at Charleston International and we look forward to many great years together,” said Paul G. Campbell Jr., executive director and CEO of the Charleston County Aviation Authority. “Giving our passengers options when it comes to their air travel is a top priority for us. Frontier, which gives its customers choices, is a perfect match.
