Frontier Launches Eight New Nonstop Flights to Puerto Rico 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 6, 2024

The sizzle of street food in Loaiza. The dynamic light shows at the Distrito. Transparent kayaks in the Condado lagoon. Picture-perfect rounds of golf at Royal Isabela. 

Puerto Rico has a vacation for every kind of travelers, and that’s part of the reason why the island has been seeing such dramatic success in the years since the pandemic. 

That’s also why ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier continues to zero in on the island — first with a rapid increase in flights and now, more recently, with a new crew base in San Juan. 

This week, Frontier took another big step, kicking off a wave of eight new nonstop flights between the mainland United States and San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.

So where is Frontier flying from now? 

Beginning this week, Frontier is now operating flights between San Juan and Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Boston, Norfolk, Palm Beach, Fort Myers, New York-JFL and Newark. 

It’s a massive expansion in service, with multiple flights each week from all of the destinations except Charlotte (with just one per week), and last least three per week from Boston, Norfolk, Fort Lauderdale and Fort Myers.

The most flights? Newark-San Juan, with 11 flights each week, although that  route actually launches on June 27.

Of course, beyond Puerto Rico’s innate charms, it’s been cheap, plentiful airfare that has helped to buoy the island’s blazing tourism growth since its initial post-pandemic reopening. 

With Frontier’s help, that’s only going to continue. 

So how much do the flights cost? 

The lowest intro fare is a $29 ticket from Fort Myers, with the highest the New York-JFL route at $99.
