Low-cost carrier Frontier coming to Dulles
CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) – Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is launching service to 14 cities from Dulles International Airport.
The Denver-based airline announced Tuesday that service will begin from Dulles in August and September.
Last month, Frontier announced a new fare structure that pushes it further toward the model of ultra-low-cost carriers that charge deeply discounted base fares, with additional fees for items like use of overhead bins, or extra leg room.
Nonstop service to Atlanta; Charlotte, North Carolina; Orlando, Florida; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Chicago-O’Hare and Tampa, Florida begins Aug. 19. Service to Cincinnati, Ohio; Detroit; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Las Vegas; Memphis, Tennessee; Fort Myers, Florida; St. Louis and St. Augustine/Jacksonville, Florida, begins Sept. 8.
The airline kicked off service with a 12-hour fare sale Tuesday that clogged the website with travelers seeking $15 one-way fares.
