Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial for Frontier Airlines, says the carrier is “elated” by the new service.

He said: “Frontier’s low fares and friendly service make it possible for more people to fly more often and we look forward to welcoming upstate New Yorkers onboard for their next sun-filled vacation this summer.”

Adam Bello, Monroe County executive, added: “With so many residents in Monroe County and the Finger Lakes region looking to enjoy the Florida sunshine throughout the year, I’m sure that nonstop flights to Orlando will be a hit for both Frontier Airlines and our local residents.”

In March, the carrier celebrated the addition of three new destinations – Cancun, Punta Cana and St Thomas – from Miami International Airport.
