Two airlines at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport are adding new destinations, providing a warm escape from our springtime snow and catapulting airport to the fastest-growing one in the nation, according to CVG officials.
The airport saw a 17 percent growth in passengers last year, according to Mindy Kershner, airport spokeswoman.
"Families that used to drive for vacation can now hop on a flight," she said.
Frontier Airlines has increased its destinations to 20 with nonstop flights to five new locations: San Jose, Austin, Jacksonville, San Antonio, and Raleigh/Durham.
The first flights to San Antonio and Raleigh/Durham begin Monday. Service to San Jose, Austin and Jacksonville embarked Sunday.
"So excited to be here today because we're starting five new markets out of here today," said Michael Pewther, senior director of on-board experience at Frontier.
"They serve destinations out in the west coast now, which we've needed, and southern destinations," CVG spokesperson Mindy Kershner said.
Allegiant Airlines is adding service to Charleston and Sarasota.
“Cincinnati-area travelers love our convenient, affordable service, and we’re excited to offer them two more great destinations to enjoy a getaway," said Lukas Johnson, Allegiant senior vice president of commercial.
