Just in time for Thanksgiving, Frontier Airlines announced that it will be adding to new service points to and from Orlando — Columbia, Mo., and Shenandoah Valley, Va.
These destinations are part of a continuing effort by Frontier Airlines to expand its offerings to and from the Orlando market. The flights will begin Nov. 20 and run Tuesdays and Saturdays to and from Columbia. From Shenandoah Valley, flights will run Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
“With the addition of these two new destinations from Orlando, Frontier is now serving a record 13 nonstop destinations from convenient Orlando International Airport, which is closer to everyone’s favorite Orlando-area destinations,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial. “This expansion continues our efforts to bring Frontier’s low-fare service to communities with expensive or non-existent access to the fun and sun of Orlando and central Florida.”
“Frontier Airlines’ decision to add two new routes to Orlando International Airport brings its total to 13 destinations served, making it the fourth largest carrier at MCO in terms of markets served. This steady growth over the past 13 years has helped open new markets to increased business and leisure travel opportunities,” says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.
The new service will operate on 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft – featuring 30 channels of Directv service available at every seat. Additionally, these flights will offer five rows of stretch seating with an additional five to seven inches of legroom, and the airline’s select seating product.
