Frontier Airlines has announced plans to add service to Las Vegas and Colorado Springs (Colo.) from Washington Dulles International Airport, beginning over the summer.
Flights will run Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, arriving in Indianapolis at 1:32 p.m. and departing at 2:20 p.m. Frontier is now accepting bookings for these flights at its web site. The airline will add Las Vegas to its current list of destinations departing from Indianapolis, which includes Denver, Orlando and Fort Myers.
Beginning July 16, Frontier will fly nonstop daily from Dulles to Las Vegas.
Daily, seasonal service to Colorado Springs will begin July 10 using Airbus A320 aircraft.
"We're pleased that Frontier is returning service between San Diego and Colorado Springs", San Diego International Airport spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield said. It's also one of 10 new year-round and seasonal routes nationwide that Frontier announced on Tuesday. Nonstop flights continue to be a major target for Indy airport officials.
"It's going to provide some real good competition and they have some introductory fares as low as $39 each way", Airport Manager Dan Letellier tells KELO Radio's It's Your Business Show with Bill Zortman.
Frontier's return helped bring passengers back to the local airport in a big way last year - the number leaving on departing flights jumped by the biggest percentage in 20 years.
