Frontier Starting Service To Some Very Cool New Cities

While we are busy speculating about a potential new big route announcement from Southwest, let’s talk for a minute about some actual new routes for sale from Frontier that I am almost as excited about in some cases. Frontier is the low-cost carrier that has really been on the expansion recently, and they are expanding into some pretty darn cool cities. Some of these are destinations they served a long time ago, but that doesn’t make them any less cool to see them return now.

These route announcements were made over the summer, but in case you missed that announcement or simply forgot about it, know that there are many new Frontier routes now available for sale into summer 2018.

You can find the full list here (you may have to scroll down to where it says Frontier Serves 90% of the Country), but here are three big route highlights to me, all of which operate to/from Denver.

Denver – Jackson, Wyoming starting at $39

Three days a week, starting June 7, 2018

Denver – Calgary starting at $49 (higher on the return due to taxes)

Three days a week, starting May 31, 2018

Denver – Palm Springs – starting at $37

Four days a week, starting November 10, 2017

In the case of the Palm Springs, you can connect to other cities, such as Houston – Denver – Palm Springs all on one ticket. However, currently, the Calgary and Jackson flights are only bookable to or from Denver. I assume that you will be able to originate in other cities on the same ticket at some point and simply connect in Denver, but that is not the functionality that is available at this moment.

Calgary and Jackson are great cities in their own right, but they are also located very close to some amazing natural wonders, namely Banff and Yellowstone, respectively. I love the ability for families to affordably fly right into those cities, and be just a short drive away from some spectacular outdoor activities and scenery. In fact, the Jackson airport is actually located within the Grand Teton National Park, and the scenery even from the runway is outstanding.

Frontier may be a bare-bones low-cost carrier, but that would not stop me from jumping on a cheap flight to one of these cities with my family! Do any of the new Frontier routes catch your eye?

Remember, those with Priority Pass Select can now ‘eat for free’ at Timberline Steak & Grill at the Denver Airport, so if you find yourself with a long Frontier connection in Denver, it might be worth the trek between terminals to that restaurant!

  1. Being based in Denver, I’m really excited for the Calgary and Jackson hole flight. United has really been the only option for either for a long time, and they rarely opened up good saver awards on these flights, and their cash prices were always high at $500+ RT for such a short flight.

    West jet also serves Denver now from Calgary, so between the Westjet and frontier, i think prices will come down significantly.

    I plan on doing a few weekend trips to Calgary next summer, flying Westjet or frontier there on Friday afternoons, and frontier back on Sunday evenings.

  2. Frontier served many of these routes for years. I remember seeing frontier on DEN-JAC nearly 4 years ago. Most of these are hardly new.

  3. Wow these are great prices, especially if you can just go with the personal item.

    I was I was in Denver, but even a connecting flight saves money. Both of these flights are usually $500 or more.

    I haven’t ever flown Frontier, how bad is it?

  4. My issue isn’t with the inflight product and baggage restrictions. It’s the terrible irrops recoveries that Frontier is known for and the fact that you basically have to wait out any mechanical/weather/crew issues they have on your flight. Only book Frontier if you’re OK being a day late on the way out and possibly on the way back. Iv’e had too many friends miss weddings etc because of Frontier.
