Frontier Airlines will be expanding to two new cities in the Northeast this summer. The ultra low-cost carrier will start flying out of Long Island’s MacArthur Airport in Islip, NY and T.F. Green Airport near Providence, RI.
Frontier’s Long Island service will begin Aug. 16 with daily service to Orlando. The MacArthur Airport, about 50 miles west of Midtown Manhattan, will be Frontier’s second current destination in the state of New York. Frontier already flies from New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
From Providence, daily service to both Denver and Orlando will begin two days earlier. The Providence airport, located about 60 miles from central Boston, will be Frontier’s only current destination in New England. Frontier says it will be the only carrier flying non-stop between the state capitals of Providence and Denver.
USA Today reports that Frontier will use Airbus A320 jets that seat 180 to 186 passenger on all of the new routes.
