Frontier Airlines Launches More Low-Fare Service from Southwest Florida International Airport

Only Nonstop Flights to Seven New Destinations, More Routes from Fort Myers Than Any Other Airline

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Low-fare carrier, Frontier Airlines is celebrating the start of service from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) with the only non-stop flights to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR), Portland International Jetport (PWM), Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), Albany International Airport (ALB) and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS). Additional connections will be available to select cities across Frontier’s network. Officials will mark the day with a celebration at the Frontier ticket counter. To celebrate the start of this new, low-cost service, Frontier is offering fares as low as $49 which are available now at FlyFrontier.com.

“We are excited to be starting service and proud to bring our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right to Fort Myers,” said Jonathan Freed, Director of Corporate Communications for Frontier Airlines. “Frontier is always looking for ways to make travel easier and more affordable, and our reimagined frequent flier program with family-friendly benefits and attainable elite status, as well as our reduced change fees – free if you make changes more than 90 days before you fly – are the latest examples of what we mean by Low Fares Done Right.”

Frontier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, you can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees and priority boarding.

“We are excited that Frontier Airlines is inaugurating service to numerous new cities this week,” said Jeff Mulder, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Lee County Port Authority. “With the addition of these new flights, Frontier will offer nonstop service during the busy winter travel season to a total of 23 cities, the most of any airline at Southwest Florida International Airport.”

Frontier customers have more options when they fly and there is no fee for reservation changes made 90 days or more from the travel date. Yes, that means no change fee. If you need to make a change between 89 and 14 days from departure the fee is only $49. Changes made 13 days or less from travel will be at the normal cost of $99. When making a change, customers just pay any increase in fare that applies.

The airline’s reimagined frequent flier program, FRONTIER Miles, lets members enjoy many benefits as well as attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly and the new program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named, because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. No matter whether a customer travels a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.

Frontier flies the youngest and most fuel-efficient fleet in the US airline industry, with 80 jet aircraft from the Airbus A320 Family.
