CINCINNATI (Sept. 19, 2017) – Frontier Airlines will launch new low-cost, nonstop service between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and San Jose, Calif. (SJC), bringing the total destinations served from CVG to 20. Frontier will operate this new route with Airbus A320 family aircraft.
San Jose’s location as a cultural, political and economic center of the booming high tech industry has earned the city the nickname “Capital of Silicon Valley.” With a population of just over 1 million San Jose is one of the wealthiest major cities in the United States and the world, and has the third highest GDP per capita in the world (after Zurich, Switzerland and Oslo, Norway), according to the Brookings Institution. With a median home price of $1,085,000, San Jose has the most expensive housing market in the country and the fifth most expensive housing market in the world, according to the 2017 Demographia International Housing Affordability Survey. Major global tech companies including Cisco Systems, eBay, Cadence Design Systems, Adobe Systems, PayPal, Brocade, Samsung, Acer and Western Digital maintain their headquarters in San Jose.
Earlier this summer, the low-cost carrier announced new service to Austin, Jacksonville, Fla., Miami, San Antonio and Raleigh Durham, N.C. The airline is celebrating all of the new service with fares as low as $39 at flyfrontier.com.
• Tickets to Miami are already on sale. First flight takes off October 5, 2017.
• Tickets to Austin, Raleigh/Durham, San Antonio and San Jose go on sale today. First flights depart spring 2018.
• Tickets to Jacksonville, Fla. go on sale soon. First flight departs spring 2018.
“We are pleased to expand our service from Cincinnati with more affordable flights and access to 20 great destinations.” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial for Frontier Airlines. “The new flights further support our mission to deliver low fares nationwide, which are now available to more than 90% of America.”
“The new San Jose route, and other destinations recently announced are important to our Tri-State region because it provides even greater access to the east and west coasts and Texas,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “With these new routes, we’re excited that Frontier is now serving 20 destinations from CVG in just a little more than four years.”
Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize their travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle offers Frontier’s most popular options for as low as $59 each way and includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat (including Frontier’s extended legroom STRETCH seating), waived change fees and priority boarding.
