Frontier Airlines to Offer Nonstop Flights from Birmingham

frontier

Frontier Airlines will begin offering direct flights out of Birmingham this spring – at a serious bargain.

At a news conference yesterday, the airline announced it will begin offering direct flights from Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport to Denver, Orlando and Philadelphia on April 11. Introductory prices will start at $39 one-way, but tickets have to be purchased today.

Flights to and from Denver will be offered on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Orlando flights will be on Monday and Friday, and flights to and from Philadelphia will be on Wednesday and Saturday.

Daniel Shurz, the senior vice president of Frontier Airlines, released a statement saying the company is looking forward to serving Birmingham and introducing its brand to the community.

Airport Authority chairman Michael Bell says the expansion lets people know the city of Birmingham is open for business.
