Frontier Seeks DOT Approval
Frontier Airlines today
announced that it has filed an application with the U.S. Department of
Transportation for authorization to expand its Mexico service by
offering non-stop service to Puerto Vallarta from Kansas City
and Salt Lake City with three flights per week in each market. In
addition, Frontier also filed for authorization to fly non-stop from its
Denver hub to Cozumel, Mexico three times per week. Frontier currently serves Mexico from Kansas City with three non-stop
flights each week to Cancun. In addition, Frontier’s offers six flights
each day to Denver which provide connecting service to Cabo San Lucas,
Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo (seasonal), and Frontier’s
many domestic destinations.
In Salt Lake City, Frontier flies non-stop to Cancun each Saturday.
Frontier’s four daily flights to Denver offer daily connections to Cancun
and Frontier’s extensive domestic network.
If granted authority, the new service between Denver and Cozumel would
represent Frontier’s sixth non-stop Mexico destination from Denver,
complementing existing service to Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Puerto
Vallarta, and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo (seasonal).
In addition, Frontier recently announced a partnership with Apple
Vacations to provide confirmed flight inventory allowing Apple to focus on
creating their signature top-quality vacation packages. Earlier in the
year, Frontier signed an agreement with popular tour operator Vacation
Express to provide seats in the Nashville-Cancun market.
“Our customers want direct service to Mexico, and with the valuable
partnership of select wholesalers we are confident that we can make this
latest expansion a success as we continue to build a national presence in
Mexico,” said Jeff Potter, President and CEO. “What makes Cozumel so
exciting is that it represents our second destination on the East Coast of
Mexico, and its world-class outdoor activities make it a great match for
