Frontier Airlines is launching twice-weekly nonstop twice-weekly nonstop service between Omaha Eppley Airfield (OMA) and St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport (PIE) on January 16 and has begun operating six-times-weekly service linking the Florida sunspot destination with Frontier’s hub at Milwaukee.

“The St. Petersburg/Clearwater area and its beautiful beaches are popular destinations for travelers from the Midwest,” says Daniel Shurz, vice president of strategy and planning for Frontier Airlines. “Our new service from Milwaukee – and from Omaha beginning in January – offers our guests nonstop, affordable travel and the convenience of a hassle-free airport that minimizes the time it takes to get to the beach.”


The new service linking Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) with St. Petersburg/Clearwater began on November 18. The route replaces service that previously operated between Milwaukee and Tampa International Airport (TPA).

Frontier Airlines Airbus A319 N929FR, "Larry the Lynx", takes off from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Under the ownership of Republic Airways Holdings, Frontier Airlines operates a fleet of Airbus A318s, A319s and A320s; Bombardier Q400s; Embraer ERJ-135s and ERJ-145s; and Embraer 175s and 190s. All of the Embraers were originally ordered by its parent company for operation by other carriers in the group before Republic bought Frontier, which Republic has merged with another carrier it bought, Midwest Airlines

Frontier’s schedule for the MKE-PIE service sees its A319 flight (which operates every day except Wednesdays) depart MKE at 7:38 a.m. and arrive at PIE at 11:23 a.m. local time. In the other direction, the flight is timed to leave PIE at 12:03 p.m. to land at MKE at 1:51 p.m. local time. There is no Tuesday service between November 18 and December 15.

Beginning December 18, Frontier’s MKE-PIE flights on Saturdays and Sundays will leave MKE at 2:40 p.m. and arrive at PIE at 6:25 p.m. In the other direction, the Saurday and Sunday flights will depart PIE at 7:05 p.m. and land at MKE at 8:53 p.m.

On the Omaha-St. Petersburg/Clearwater route, the schedule for the January 16-April 17 period will see the twice-weekly flights (operated by Embraer 190s) leave OMA at 8:25 a.m. on Wednesdays and Sundays and arrive at PIE at 12:25 p.m. local time. In the other direction, the flights will depart PIE at 12:55 p.m. in order to reach OMA at 3:00 p.m.
