Frontier Airlines is launching another major Caribbean expansion that will include several high-profile travel destinations. 

This winter, the carrier will kick off its first-ever service to destinations including Antigua and Barbuda, Turks and Caicos and Belize. 

On Dec. 4, Frontier will launch its first-ever flights to Antigua, with weekly Saturday flights out of Orlando. 

 “The launch of the new service out of the busy Orlando airport opens up an important gateway to Antigua, with links to major US cities.  We can now look forward to meeting the increased demand coming out of the US this winter and from all indications, we can also expect to see more competitive pricing brought on by Frontier Airlines’ affordable rates,” said Charles Fernandez, Minister of Tourism of Antigua and Barbuda.

CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority Colin C. James said the announcement was “good news for the industry, good news for Antigua and Barbuda, and a show of confidence in our rebound.”  

That will be followed by new service from both Orlando and Denver to Belize, with weekly Saturday flights launching on Dec. 11 from both cities.

On Dec. 17, the carrier will kick off weekly Friday service from Orlando to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.

Frontier has been adding new flights to the Caribbean as fast or faster than any other carrier, with a broad expansion out of airports like Orlando, Miami and even, most recently, Atlantic City. 

Frontier is also expanding its service to Montego Bay, Jamaica, with thrice-weekly service from Orlando to Montego Bay beginning Nov. 2.

That’s along with new service from Orlando to Nassau, The Bahamas, with flights four times each week, and a weekly Saturday flight from Orlando to Cozumel (that will kick off on Nov. 6). 

It’s one of the largest-ever international expansions for Frontier, according to Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial, Frontier Airlines. 

“Summer 2021 has led to phenomenal growth for Frontier,” Shurz said. “Frontier travelers now have more route options than ever before to explore, while at the same time knowing they’re flying on America’s Greenest Airline, with a young fleet that maximizes efficiency every flight.”
