Frontier Airlines has added three new routes for passengers at William P. Hobby Airport in Houston.

The expanded partnership was announced Jan. 18 and will begin in May of this year. Advertised as a “low-fare carrier,” the airline will provide nonstop service to Cancun, Las Vegas and Orlando.

“Frontier takes low fares to heart—it’s the core of our business—and today’s announcement of new flights to Cancun, Las Vegas and Orlando furthers our mission to make flying more accessible and affordable for everyone,” said Josh Flyr, vice president of network and operational design for Frontier Airlines. “We look forward to launching service at [Hobby Airport] and bringing increased air service competition to the market.”

Service to Cancun will begin May 26, with service to Las Vegas and Orlando beginning May 27. Frontier Airlines also has service at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, servicing flights to Las Vegas, Orlando, Atlanta, Denver and Philadelphia.

Flights to Cancun will happen three times a week and flights to Las Vegas and Orlando will happen four times a week, according to the press release.



“Having Frontier Airlines at Hobby Airport provides tremendous value for our community and the traveling public,” said Molly Waits, chief marketing, air service development and communications officer for Houston Airports. “I’m confident Frontier will help us continue to deliver a world-class experience at [Hobby Airport]—the first five-star rated airport in North America—as they do at [IAH] with their low fares and efficient, reliable service to passengers.”
