Frontier Airlines Returning to Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids, Mich. – Frontier Airlines is returning to Grand Rapids (GRR), the airline announced today.

Frontier, headquartered in Denver, will be serving the Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GFIA) with four weekly nonstop flights to Orlando International Airport (MCO) on an Airbus A320 family aircraft, along with service to Denver International Airport (DEN). The Orlando service is scheduled weekly for departures on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. The service begins in December 2017. Frontier has not announced the start date for Denver, but the airline is expected to begin serving that route in Spring 2018.

“We are thrilled to welcome Frontier back into the Grand Rapids market,” said GFIA President & CEO Jim Gill. “Having another low cost carrier option to stimulate competition and offer even more nonstop service is a welcome addition for our air service portfolio and our growing community.”

Orlando is the number one market for nonstop service out of Grand Rapids with an average of almost 200 passengers per day each way. Denver is a top-ten market for GFIA.

“With today’s announcement, Frontier now offers our Low Fares Done Right to new destinations from Grand Rapids,” said Jim Faulkner, head of corporate communications, Frontier Airlines. “Customers traveling from Grand Rapids now have a new low-cost option in these markets, and with The WORKS and The PERKS, we offer the best value in U.S. air travel.”

Booking is available now on Frontier’s website, www.flyfrontier.com, for travel starting December 13, 2017 through April 7, 2018.
