Frontier adding Omaha-San Antonio direct flight

Adjust Comment Print

Frontier Airlines is celebrating 5 years at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

The new San Antonio service starts August 13 and will run Mondays and Fridays only.

Frontier is offering introductory fares on the route of $39 each way. To get the low fare tickets must be purchased by May 18 with travel on Mondays beginning August 13 and through November 14. It will leave Omaha at 10 a.m. and arrive in San Antonio at 12:23 p.m. Eight of the nine destinations were previously unserved with direct flights from San Antonio. The service will begin October 4.

To commemorate the anniversary Thursday, the airline is giving away five pairs of round-trip flights on every departing flight. It also means Frontier will become the largest carrier in San Antonio, in regards to destinations served. It will begin nonstop service to San Francisco International Airport on June 6. Those routes, and several others, were eliminated a year ago after other airlines - chiefly United - cut fares to compete.

Sacramento airport officials have been pushing to land a low-priced carrier for nonstop flights to Europe as well.

In addition to San Antonio and Austin, Frontier flies from Cleveland to: Denver, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Orlando, Portland, Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, Seattle, Tampa and Cancun, Mexico.
