SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAY 29, 2020

Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines today announces 18 new routes for summer 2020. The new flights beginning in June and July expand the airline’s rapidly growing presence in major cities, including Boston, Chicago, Newark and Philadelphia. To celebrate these new, low-cost flight options, Frontier is offering fares as low as $29*, which are available now at FlyFrontier.com. Plus, as another step to support the health and well-being of customers, the carrier will be the first U.S. airline to implement mandatory temperature screenings for passengers and team members beginning June 1, 2020.

“We’re pleased to announce 18 new routes and demonstrate our commitment to providing low fares to great destinations for our customers as the country reopens,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial for Frontier Airlines. “Frontier has been at the forefront in implementing numerous measures to support passenger well-being in-flight and we are seeing a strong uptick in summer travel demand. We anticipate these new routes to a variety of popular vacation destinations will be in high demand as family and friends seek affordable domestic summer travel options.”

New routes available from the following cities:

From Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD): Starting July 4
From Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLW): Starting June 6
From Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG): Starting July 4
From Philadelphia International Airport (PHL): Starting June 6

Frontier has been an industry leader in health initiatives and most recently became the first U.S. airline to announce required temperature screenings for all passengers and team members beginning on June 1, 2020. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will be denied boarding as a step to better protect other passengers while flying.

Additionally, in April, Frontier announced sweeping health and safety enhancements affecting every step of a customer’s travel journey with the airline. Beginning with required face coverings that must be worn by all passengers and team members throughout every flight and a health acknowledgement. Prior to completing check-in via the company’s website or mobile app, passengers are required to confirm that:

  • Neither they nor anyone in their household has exhibited Covid-19 related symptoms in the last 14 days
  • They will check their temperature before heading to the airport and not travel if they have a fever
  • They will wash their hands/sanitize before boarding the flight
  • They understand and acknowledge the airline’s face covering policy and pre-boarding temperature screening policies

Frontier also introduced a fogging disinfectant to its already stringent aircraft cleaning and sanitation protocols, which provides a safe, certified disinfecting solution proven to be effective against many viruses, including coronavirus. The fogging includes virtually every surface in the passenger cabin. Planes are wiped down every night with additional disinfectant, as well.

During flight, main cabin air is a mix of fresh air drawn from outside and air that has been passed through an air filtration system that features HEPA filters capable of capturing respiratory virus particles at more than 99.7% efficiency – similar to those used in hospital environments. Frontier’s modern all-Airbus fleet is among the youngest in the world - all aircraft currently in operation are less than four years old.
