Ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines has been rapidly expanding its Caribbean network in the pandemic, and now the company is adding two more routes to the region.
The new service between Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport will kick off on Nov. 5.
That route will be operating once weekly.
The new route from Atlanta to Kingston’s Norman Manley International Airport will begin two days later on Nov. 7, Frontier said.
Atlanta-Kingston flights will run twice each week, another boost for Jamaica’s capital, which is becoming a tourist destination in its own right, including the recent debut of Hilton’s first Tapestry Collection hotel in the Caribbean.
Frontier is the second-largest international carrier at Atlanta’s Airport, following Delta Air Lines.
“This international expansion marks an exciting milestone for Frontier at ATL,” said Jake Filene, senior vice president for customers atFrontier Airlines. “We now offer an extensive range of flight options, including an impressive roster of international destinations, providing Atlanta-area consumers even more opportunities to enjoy our ‘Low Fares Done Right.’ With the addition of these new routes, Frontier now serves 36 nonstop destinations in total from ATL.”
Frontier is also launching Atlanta-Costa Rica flights in November and December, with service to both San Jose and Liberia airports.
“This is a significant moment for Frontier Airlines here at Hartsfield-Jackson,” said Airport Deputy General Manager and Chief Commercial Officer Jai Ferrell. “We are excited that Frontier will expand our travelers’ choice of international connectivity with these five new routes.”
