CVG gains new service to five cities from Frontier Airlines

CINCINNATI (Aug. 28, 2014) – Frontier Airlines announces five new flights from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) starting Sept. 8 to Dallas/Ft.Worth (DFW), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Las Vegas (LAS), Orlando (MCO) and Phoenix (PHX). To attract attention, Frontier is briefly offering introductory $14.99 and $29 one-way flights.

Frontier will now serve 10 destinations from CVG, including Denver (DEN), Trenton (TTN), and Washington, DC-Dulles (IAD). Frontier also operates the flights to Cancun and Punta Cana for Apple Vacations.

  • Economy customers pay the lowest fares but also for up-charge services such as selecting a seat assignment, a carry-on bag, and checked bags.

“This is a truly remarkable day at CVG,” said Candace McGraw, CEO of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International. “Frontier was the first low-cost carrier to begin service at CVG in May 2013 with one daily flight to Denver. Within 18 months of beginning service from CVG, Frontier will offer 41 flights per week to 10 destinations. By adding service to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, Frontier will increase their flights at CVG by 106 percent.”

“This addition further expands CVG’s low cost carrier foot print and further enhances our ability to provide a variety of options to customers in the tri-state region. This success would not be possible without the support of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community,” said Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III, Kenton County Airport Board chairman.
