“Colorado Springs is an important part of Frontier’s network and we are pleased to provide southern Coloradans with their only nonstop access to sunny San Diego,” says Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial.

From September 18 to November 15, Frontier’s Colorado Springs-San Diego service calls for the flight to depart Colorado Springs Airport (COS) at 2:32 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and land at San Diego International Airport (SAN) at 3:40 p.m. local time.

In the other direction, Frontier’s flight is timed to leave SAN at 4:20 p.m. on the same three days and reach COS at 7:22 p.m. local time.

From November 16, the frequency of the service will increase to four round-trips a week and the schedule times will change. The Frontier flight will push back from the gate at COS at 10:07 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and touch down at SAN at 11:15 a.m. local time.

In the other direction, the Frontier Airlines flight is scheduled to begin taxiing at SAN at 11:55 a.m. on the same four days, in order to arrive at COS at 2:57 p.m. local time.

Frontier Airlines’ mainline fleet is composed of Aibus A319s and A320s but Embraer 190s and ERJ-135s operated by sister Republic Airways Holdings carriers are increasingly appearing in Frontier’s colors and operating flights on the combined Frontier-Midwest Express network under Frontier’s flight code


Frontier will operate the new service with 138-seat Airbus A319 aircraft.

On September 17, Frontier Airlines announced it would begin new non-stop service between its hub at Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE)  in Ohio with four-times-weekly round-trips beginning on January 9.

To promote the new service, Frontier is offering one-way fares from $80 in either direction on the Denver-Cleveland route. Sale fares are available for purchase through September 30 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, at

The introductory fares are available for travel from January 9 through March 17, 2013. A round-trip purchase is not required, but a 14-day advance purchase condition applies.

“We’ve seen incredible demand for low-fare, high-value nonstop service to Denver throughout the northeast Ohio region,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial.

Frontier Airlines, which when bought by Republic Airways Holdings was merged with Midwest Airlines under the Frontier name, took delivery of this new Airbus A320 on March 31, 2010. The first of three A320s to be delivered to Frontier in the spring of 2010, this aircraft features ‘Ozzy the Orca’ on its tail


“We are excited to welcome Frontier Airlines service to Denver for the first time,” said Ricky Smith, director of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. “Frontier currently provides service from CLE to Punta Cana and Cancun through a partnership with Apple Vacations. This new service to the Rocky Mountain region is a great added bonus for Cleveland travelers.”

From January 9, 2013, Frontier will consolidate all its northeastern Ohio operations at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Frontier already offers service from Cleveland Hopkins to Cancun, Mexico, and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

The schedule for Frontier’s Denver-Cleveland service calls for its flight to depart DEN at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and land at CLE at 9:20 p.m. local time.

In the other direction, Frontier’s flight is scheduled to leave CLE at 5:50 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and reach DEN at 7:20 p.m. local time.

The airline will operate its new Denver-Cleveland service with 168-seat Airbus A320 jets.
