New, Cheap Flights Are Coming to Fly to the Island of Barbados 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 21, 2024

Ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines has quietly been developing into a full-fledged Caribbean airline. 

The airline just opened a new crew base at San Juan, Puerto Rico’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, and has been adding a host of new intra-Caribbean flights across the region. 

It started with flights to the Dominican Republic and Cancun, and now Frontier has added new flights to St Croix, St Maarten and, most recently, another Dominican Republic destination: Santiago de los Caballeros. 

But an even more significant route starts early next month: Barbados, in a landmark new service for the southeastern Caribbean island.

Beginning July 3, Frontier will be operating thrice-weekly non-stop flights between San Juan and Barbados. 

That’s a big lift for the island, opening up Barbados to Frontier’s wide-ranging network of connections to source cities across the mainland United States. 

So what will it cost? 

That just might be the most notable news: fares start at just $69.
