Frontier Launches Knoxville to Orlando

More Non-Stops to Orlando

Frontier Airlines, which recently added nonstop flights between Orlando (MCO) and Allentown (ABE) and between Orlando (MCO) and Harrisburg (MDT) is expanding from Orlando once again.

The lucky city is Knoxville, Tennessee’s Mc Ghee Tyson Airport (TYS) with nonstop flights to Orlando International Airport (MCO).  Frontier will take-off from Knoxville starting March 15, 2012, with three nonstop flights each week.  With the new flights, Frontier will serve their hub at Denver International Airport (DEN), Orlando International (MCO), and 10 destinations nonstop from Orlando.

The flights will operate on 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft – featuring leather seats, five rows of STRETCH seating with an additional 5 to 7 inches of legroom, and 24 channels of Live DirecTV.  Both the Orlando-Allentown service and Orlando-Harrisburg services will also use the A319.

Robert Westgate, Frontier’s senior director of Planning and Scheduling, said, “Both business and leisure travelers will clearly benefit from Frontier’s low-fare, high-value service between Knoxville and Orlando.”  Westgate continued, “We’re looking forward to meeting the continuing demand for nonstop service on this route.”

“Frontier Airlines introduced lower fares to Denver and the West Coast when they arrived at McGhee Tyson Airport in June 2011,” said Howard Vogel, chairman of the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority’s Board of Directors. “They are expanding their low-fare presence with the launch of their new nonstop flights to our most popular destination – Orlando. Families planning trips for spring break and summer vacation have even more low-fare options with Frontier’s new direct flights into Orlando International Airport.”
