Frontier Airlines launches three new Miami links

Services to Cancun, Punta Cana and the St Thomas will commence this spring

Frontier Airlines – a Colorado based low-cost carrier – has recently celebrated the launch of its services at Miami International Airport to three new destinations which begin this spring.

The new connections to Cancun in Mexico will run four times a week, alongside new rotations to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands which will be operated twice weekly.

Introducing three new routes from Miami is part of the airline’s expansion which began in December with the implementation of three weekly flights to Santo Domingo. This was then followed by the launch of its daily service to Orlando last month.

Daniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade County mayor, commented: “Congratulations to Frontier Airlines and MIA, for giving our residents and visitors more travel options between Miami-Dade County and these three popular destinations. Frontier’s ongoing expansion at MIA is also helping to accelerate the safe rebound of our tourism industry and revive our local economy now and in the months ahead.”

More destinations are set to be added in April, including weekly flights to Guatemala City, four weekly flights to San Salvador and four weekly links to Ontario in California. By next month, the carrier’s route network from MIA will have expanded to 29 destinations.

“Frontier continues to be an instrumental partner in safely bringing passengers back to flying at MIA. We deeply appreciate their growing commitment to serving Miami-Dade County with additional domestic and international options from our airport this year,” said Lester Sola, MIA director and CEO.

Frontier continued operations throughout the pandemic – one of five airlines to do so at MIA. In total, it served more than 481,000 passengers last year.

The airline operates more than 100 Airbus A320 family aircraft and has one of the largest A320neo fleets in the US.
