(Cleveland) - Frontier Airlines today announced it will be taking its talents to the Cleveland area by expanding its ultra-low fare service at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport with the addition of year-round nonstop service to Orlando, Fla. and seasonal nonstop service to Seattle, Wash., beginning June 13, 2014.
To celebrate this announcement, Frontier is offering fares as low as $69* each way to Orlando and $119 each way to Seattle through Feb. 17, 2014 only at its website, FlyFrontier.com.
When service starts, Frontier Airlines will offer not one, not two, not three, but SIX destinations from Cleveland.
Frontier also provides nonstop service to its main hub in Denver, Colo. as well as nonstop service to both Cancun and Punta Cana in partnership with Apple Vacations.
In June, frequency of service from Cleveland to Denver will increase from five flights per week to 12 flights per week.
Hopkins Airport spokeswoman Jackie Mayo says for the past several years, they have been working to make the port more attracted to air carriers and now it is paying off.
Mayo tells Newsradio WTAM 1100 that the United Airlines hub may have prevented other carriers from expanding service here. With that hub being phased out, Mayo contends it's opening new opportunities.

“We are extremely pleased Frontier is connecting Trenton to Cleveland today,” said Airport Director Ricky Smith. “This is even a greater day for consumers as Frontier has announced they will add frequencies to their current Denver nonstop service and begin two new routes from CLE- Orlando and Seattle - Seattle is one of the markets we lost with United’s decision to pull down the hub and Orlando is one of the region's top leisure markets. I want to thank Frontier for their confidence in Cleveland Hopkins and the Northeast Ohio region.”
“With the launch of service to Trenton-Mercer Airport today and the addition of these two routes in June, Northeast Ohioans now have an ultra-low fare option to get to both the east and west coast with Frontier,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial.
