HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - Frontier Airlines announced four new destinations from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) Thursday.

The low-cost carrier will fly to Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Houston (IAH) and Philadelphia (PHL).

Introductory fares to Los Angeles and San Francisco are expected to start at $79 each way, Houston (IAH) at $59 and Philadelphia at $39.

Frontier also said it will bring back seasonal nonstop service to Atlanta (ATL), Phoenix (PHX) and Dallas (DFW).

The four new destinations mean Frontier will now offer 11 destinations from CVG, including existing service to Denver (DEN), Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS) and Fort Myers (RSW).

The new flights will start on April 14.

"Travelers between big cities have enjoyed low fares while many markets have remained overpriced and under-served," said Frontier Airlines President Barry Biffle in a prepared statement.

"Frontier's low fares in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky will benefit thousands of new fliers including small business customers, friends and families who need to travel and even people who choose to drive because they haven't found affordable air travel options," she said. "We see hundreds of additional opportunities like these throughout the country, fueling our growth for years to come."

Candace McGraw, CVG's chief executive officer, said this is the first time the airport will offer non-stop low-cost carrier service to four large markets.

"In total, Frontier will be offering more than 50 weekly flights to 11 destinations and are growing their CVG service year-over-year by approximately 6 to 8 percent," she said in a prepared statement.

The new service will operate on a combination of 230-seat Airbus A321 aircraft, 180-seat A320 aircraft and 156-seat A319 aircraft.

Customers can take advantage of Frontier's bundled choice, The WORKSsm  containing Frontier's most popular options for one low price.

The WORKS is available at at time of initial booking and includes one carry-on bag, one checked bag, best available seat including Stretch and Exit Row options, full refundability when canceled at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure, no change fees and priority boarding.

"We are proud Frontier is once again expanding their foot print at CVG," said J. Michael Schlotman, Kenton County Airport Board Chairman. "Thanks to the support of the entire Tri-State community, Frontier has experienced tremendous success at CVG.  We are confident these new routes will be a success and further enhances CVG as the airport of choice for the region."
