HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - Frontier Airlines has announced the expansion of nonstop service from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to Denver International Airport (DEN).
The expanded service will begin in May 2014. The new expansion will include the addition of two new weekly flights, growing to a total of 11 weekly flights by August 2014.
Frontier first began service from CVG in May of 2013 becoming the first low cost carrier to serve CVG since 1998. In October, Frontier announced it was adding a second destination from CVG with three flights a week to Trenton Mercer Airport in Ewing, New Jersey beginning February 12.
"The addition of a second flight four days a week to Denver combined with the previously announced new service to New Jersey speaks to the strong response Frontier has received by the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community" says Candace S. McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. "Frontier flights have operated with a load factor on average that is above 90 percent since they started service last May. We are excited about the new opportunity this expanded schedule gives to the travelers in our region."
When fully implemented, the new expanded schedule will offer two flights a day on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and one flight a day on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Both departure times will offer customers convenient flight connections from Denver to 19 destinations.
