Frontier Airlines Announces New Flights to Orlando and Austin from Albuquerque Sunport – February 2, 2018

Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is bringing more low fares to the Albuquerque International Sunport with new nonstop flights to Austin and Orlando. This announcement comes just months after the carrier began new service to Denver and brings the total number of destinations served to three. To celebrate this new service, Frontier is offering special introductory fares as low as $39* each way on

The new flights to Orlando International Airport will be the only nonstop low fare flights from Albuquerque to Orlando. Flights to Orlando and Austin will begin April 9. Frontier began service to Denver on October 24, 2017 after a four-year hiatus from the community.

“The Albuquerque community has embraced our Low Fares Done Right service since our return last fall,” said Daniel Shurz, Sr. Vice President, Commercial for Frontier Airlines. “We are delighted to continue to reduce the cost of flying to and from New Mexico even more with new flight options to Austin and the only nonstop flights to the popular vacation destination of Orlando.”

“Tourism is one of Albuquerque’s largest industries, and New Mexico’s culture and unique natural beauty make it a destination for many travelers,” said Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller. “Having more choices for air travel is key as incoming travelers plan their trips, and it will provide New Mexicans the opportunity to check out new, easy destinations for work and play. We’re excited that Frontier has chosen to expand their options in our market, helping to bolster the industry that has brought over $1.6 billion to Albuquerque’s economy.”
