Frontier Airlines Starting Service from Philadelphia International Airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Frontier Airlines is celebrating its start of service from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) to Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ). This new non-stop service means the airline will serve 31 cities non-stop from Philadelphia, further extending the airline’s role as the 2nd largest carrier at the airport by destinations served. To celebrate the new low-cost service, Frontier is offering special introductory one-way fares which are available now on flyfrontier.com.
“We are excited to be further expanding our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right in Philadelphia with some great new destinations for summer travel,” said Josh Flyr, Vice President, Network and Revenue 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 is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers 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.
“Many in the Philadelphia region often look to escape the winter cold by traveling to warm weather destinations,” said Philadelphia Airport Chief Executive Officer, Chellie Cameron. “Montego Bay offers respite from northern winters and a beautiful place to visit. We are excited that Frontier has added this popular destination to its growing route map from Philadelphia.”
Frontier Airlines is committed to families, and what better way to demonstrate that than helping America’s kids fly for free. Children 14 years and younger can now fly free when traveling with an adult through the airline’s Discount Den travel club on qualifying flights. With more than 100 destinations to choose from, Frontier is removing the obstacles for families to travel together whether it’s for a sunny vacation or a visit to grandma’s house. It’s easy to take advantage of Kids Fly Free. And the math is easy, too – one kid can fly free for every adult who books at flyfrontier.com. Simply select a flight on a date that is qualified for Kids Fly Free which is easy to find as it’s marked with a Kids Fly Free logo beneath the Discount Den price. Additional information about Kids Fly Free is available at https://www.flyfrontier.com/kidsflyfree.
The airline’s 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 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. If a customer travels a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.
Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry, the Airbus A320 Family of more than 80 jet aircraft. With nearly 200 new planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company will continue to keep fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.
Frontier wants its customers to have more options when they fly and there is no fee for reservation changes made 90 days or more from the travel date. 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 cost $119. When making a change, customers just pay any increase in fare that applies.
