Frontier Airlines will nearly double its number of flights at CVG by this spring – an expansion that could make a significant impact on lowering average ticket prices at the nation's most expensive airport.
The low-cost carrier announced Monday that it will add 29 more flights a week from CVG, including new daily nonstop service to ATL and RSW. Frontier also is increasing its service to LAS, MCO and FLL– routes the airline already serves from CVG.
It is the biggest one-time expansion of flights by any airline at CVG in nearly a decade – topping Frontier's one-time addition of 21 weekly flights last fall. And even more flights could be on the way from Frontier.
"We know the demand is out there," said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of Frontier. "And we when see a region that responds to our service, we come back and add more."
Few other regions have responded to Frontier than low-cost-starved Greater Cincinnati. Frontier started here in May 2013 with six flights a week to DEN. With the latest expansion, Frontier will offer 61 weekly flights to 11 cities – making it the second largest airline at CVG next to dominant carrier Delta Airlines
