Low Fares Done Right for Houston Recovery
In addition, the carrier is keeping fares to and from the Houston area affordable to allow aid workers and family to travel affordably to assist those who have been impacted by this natural disaster. For the next week, the airline’s highest fare to or from Houston for travel in September and October will be $99** one way.
“Our hearts go out to the families of Houston and the other areas in Southeast Texas affected by hurricane Harvey,” said Jim Nides, chief operating officer – Frontier Airlines. “Frontier Airlines will help our friends in Texas by offering our lowest fares so that people can afford to travel to and from Houston to support their friends and family.”
The airline sent relief supplies on their first flight back into the Houston area to aid with the recovery efforts. Additionally, the airline sent care boxes for their team members, friends and family who were affected by this storm. Frontier resumed operations last Thursday morning with a special relief flight that left Denver at 7:00 a.m.
