Frontier Airlines has expanded its offerings at Philadelphia International Airport for the third time this year, adding nonstop flights to Fort Myers, Florida, and Montego Bay, Jamaica, starting on Oct. 25.
As the Philadelphia Business Journal reported, the Denver-based budget airline started nonstop service to Minneapolis and Houston in April and to Atlanta, Charlotte and Chicago in March.
Flights to Jamaica will depart on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays while flights to Fort Myers will depart daily.
As of Wednesday morning, Frontier’s website showed one-way flights available for as low as $99 to Fort Myers and $192 to Montego Bay.
Frontier now sells tickets from Philadelphia to 11 cities in the U.S. and three overseas, including Cancun, Mexico, and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
The airline’s expansion comes at a time when the airport is expanding as well, Philadelphia Magazine noted. PHL is extending a runway to make room for bigger planes and redesigning terminals B and C.
