Frontier Airlines is launching 16 new routes from Orlando International Airport this holiday season.




The network expansion will make the airline the largest nonstop operator out of Orlando.
The US is reopening its borders on November 8, boosting both international and domestic travel demand.

Frontier Airlines is expanding its domestic and international network with new routes out of Orlando International Airport in November and December, just in time for the busy holiday season.
Frontier Airlines announced on Tuesday that it is launching 16 new routes to warm and cold-weather destinations this winter, expanding the airline's route map to 81 cities across the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

The new route additions will make Frontier the largest nonstop operation out of Orlando, offering more options to travelers than any other carrier, according to the airline. Frontier said intro fares start at just $19 one-way.
"We're excited to celebrate another remarkable expansion of service at Orlando International Airport with 13 new routes launching this month, along with three more coming in December," said Daniel Shurz, Frontier's senior vice president of commercial. The company "looks forward to welcoming new travelers onboard to explore our expansive network of international and domestic destinations from Orlando," he added. The decision comes as airlines prepare for an increase in travel demand going into the winter months, particularly as the US reopens its borders to international travelers on November 8. According to The New York Times, the increase in foreign visitors is boosting both international and domestic travel.
"The start of Frontier's winter air service expansion is coming at a time when Americans are more ready than ever to travel again," Greater Orlando Aviation Authority CEO Phil Brown said. "With inaugural flights to domestic and international places like Sioux Falls, Idaho; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and Turks & Caicos, we welcome the ability to increase access to the country's most visited destination and expanding travel opportunities for Central Florida residents."
Outdoor travel to beach destinations, especially in Mexico and the Caribbean, is in high demand, and Frontier is tapping into the growing market with its focus on flights between Florida and countries like El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Belize. The Denver-based carrier has also been beefing up its winter network in Tampa and Cancun, with 11 new routes launching between the two cities and destinations across the US by the end of January 2022.
