Frontier Airlines Announces New Service Between the Albuquerque International Sunport and San Antonio International Airport – May 17, 2018
Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is bringing more low fares to the Albuquerque International Sunport with new nonstop service from San Antonio, Texas. This service marks the first and only nonstop service to San Antonia from Albuquerque. Service will begin Aug. 15.
“We are excited to see Frontier continuing to expand their services to Albuquerque, and the addition of San Antonio service marks a milestone for Albuquerque,” said Nyika Allen, Director of Aviation for the City of Albuquerque. “Not only do we get to celebrate more choices for travelers, but we also get to celebrate a brand new destination and new opportunities for New Mexico tourism.”
“Making Albuquerque more accessible is a critical component to tourism and economic development, and this direct flight service will open up new opportunities for us to share our city, while making Albuquerque more marketable to industries looking to locate here,” said Mayor Tim Keller.
Frontier’s announcement comes just one month after service began between Albuquerque and Austin, Texas and Orlando, Fla. The carrier now offers nonstop flights to four destinations. To celebrate the new service, special introductory fares as low as $29* each way are available at FlyFrontier.com.

With new service to San Antonio, we now serve four great nonstop destinations,” said Richard Oliver, Spokesperson for Frontier Airlines. “We’re offering incredibly low fares and a reliable, friendly service that allows people to customize the travel experience to their needs and budget.
