Fares as low as $49*

Vermont Business Magazine Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines celebrated its arrival in Vermont on Saturday with the start of service from Burlington International Airport (BTV) to Orlando International Airport (MCO). The new route provides the only non-stop service from Vermont to Florida. Additional connections will be available to select cities across Frontier’s network. Officials marked the day with a launch party at the Frontier gate. To celebrate the start of this new low-cost service, Frontier is offering fares as low as $49 which are available now at FlyFrontier.com.

“We are excited to be starting service and bringing our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right to Burlington and the Lake Champlain Region as well as the Montreal area,” said Jonathan Freed, Director of Corporate Communications for Frontier Airlines. “Frontier is always looking for ways to make travel easier and more affordable and our new Kids Fly Free program along with our reimagined frequent flier program with its family-friendly benefits and attainable elite status, as well as our reduced change fees – free if you make changes more than 90 days before you fly – are what we mean by Low Fares Done Right.”

Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees and priority boarding.

“With this direct flight to Orlando, I’m pleased that the Burlington International Airport is continuing to expand the options and service available to Burlingtonians and everyone in the region,” said Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger. “Thanks to the hard work and commitment of the Airport team, the Burlington International Airport keeps getting even better.”

Frontier Airlines is committed to families, and what better way to demonstrate that than helping America’s kids fly for free. Children 14 years and younger can now fly free when traveling with an adult through the airline’s Discount Den travel club on qualifying flights. With more than 100 destinations to choose from, Frontier is removing the obstacles for families to travel together whether it’s for a sunny vacation or a visit to grandma’s house. It’s easy to take advantage of Kids Fly Free. And the math is easy, too – one kid can fly free for every adult who books at flyfrontier.com. Simply select a flight on a date that is qualified for Kids Fly Free which is easy to find as it’s marked with a Kids Fly Free logo beneath the Discount Den price. Additional information about Kids Fly Free, is available at www.flyfrontier.com/kidsflyfree

“We feel grateful to be receiving this non-stop service to the Sunshine State,” said Director of Aviation Gene Richards. “There is nothing better than taking off from BTV and in three hours landing at Orlando’s MCO airport. This service is a gift, and we are thankful for it and Frontier’s partnership.”

Frontier recently announced that Denver (DEN) will be its second non-stop destination from Burlington starting May 1, 2019 and details can be found at FlyFrontier.com.

The airline’s reimagined frequent flier program, FRONTIER Miles lets members enjoy many benefits as well as attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly and the new program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named, because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. If a customer travels a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.

Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry, the Airbus A320 Family of nearly 80 jet aircraft. With nearly 200 new planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company will continue to keep fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.
