New nonstop flights from Austin are poised for take-off. This spring Frontier Airlines will add service from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to Orlando, Florida and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Colorado-based airline, known for affordable fares, will offer one-way flights to Orlando and Philadelphia for as as low as $79 and $99, respectively. According to Frontier, the industry average for a one-way ticket to Orlando is $130, while Philadelphia will set you back $207.
"Frontier's low fares in these new markets will benefit millions of new fliers who are forced to drive because they haven't found affordable air travel options," said Frontier Airlines President Barry Biffle in a press release.
Service to Orlando will be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Philadelphia flights will be scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. Service on both routes begins in April.
ABIA has experienced a notable increase in nonstop flights in the past year. Southwest Airlines has added nonstop service to Memphis, Tennessee; Seattle, Washington; Boston, Massachusetts; Portland, Oregon; St. Louis, Missouri; and Orange County, California.
