Denver, Colo.-based Frontier Airlines announced it is adding five new routes and three new cities, along with increasing its frequencies, as part of its summer schedule for 2011.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc., Frontier said it plans to add Knoxville, Tenn. (TYS); Provo, Utah (PVU) and Sioux Falls, S.D. (FSD) to its route map with the addition of nonstop service from its Denver hub.
These three markets bring the total of nonstop destinations served from Denver by Frontier to 63.

In addition, the carrier announced it will launch new nonstop service between its Kansas City hub and both Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn. (MSP) and San Antonio, Texas (SAT) this summer.

The new service rounds out the carrier's summer schedule that features increased capacity in top markets and the return of popular summer seasonal service.

"These new markets really highlight our desire to give our guests affordable and convenient travel to more destinations than ever before," said Daniel Shurz, vice president of strategy and planning.

"Frontier is an airline that truly provides our guests choice in how they want to travel. With our affordable fares, convenient schedules, and better and different service, we are looking forward to joining these communities and giving them the opportunity to choose how they want to fly," he added.

Additionally, beginning this June, Frontier will double frequencies between Denver and Des Moines, Iowa (DSM); and Madison, Wis. (MSN); and increase service between Denver and Portland, Ore. (PDX); San Francisco, Calif. (SFO); Seattle/Tacoma, Wash. (SEA) and Spokane, Wash. (GEG) to meet high demand during the peak travel season.

In addition, Frontier will also be resuming popular summer service to several destinations from Denver and Milwaukee. This includes non-stop service between Denver and Anchorage, Alaska (ANC); Fairbanks, Alaska (FAI) and Green Bay, Wis. (GRB).

Currently in its 17th year of operations, Frontier employs more than 5,500 aviation professionals and operates more than 550 daily flights from its hubs at Denver International Airport, Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport, Kansas City International Airport, and Omaha's Eppley Airfield. Frontier offers routes to more than 70 destinations in the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica.
