CLEVELAND-- Big news out of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Tuesday.

Frontier Airlines is expanding service at the airport again.

Frontier Airlines announced they are adding six new nonstop destinations out of Cleveland beginning in June.

"Starting June 13, we've added non-stop five times a week to Atlanta, three times a week to Fort Lauderdale, three times a week to Fort Myers, three times a week to Phoenix, three times a week to Raleigh, and three times a week to Tampa," said Daniel Shurz, Frontier Airline's senior vice president, commercial.

The airline, which is based out of Denver, is also increasing weekly flights to Denver from 5 to 12 and increasing weekly flights to Orlando from 4 to 6.

"We're an airline designed for customers who use their own money to pay for travel. We realize what values are important to our customers and that's what we deliver," added Shurz.

This comes on the heels of United Airline's announcement back in February that they were dropping Cleveland as a hub, reducing nearly 60% of daily departures in the next couple months.

"Many of the markets that Frontier are adding are markets lost by the hub loss. So we are excited that Frontier airlines is adding new service and putting their confidence in Cleveland," said Ricky Smith, airport director.

Now Frontier is offering low prices for each of those flights until Saturday.

People have to fly by August 10, 2014. And, Frontier says fares shown are one way.

-- $39* each way to Raleigh-Durham
-- $59* each way to Atlanta
-- $69* each way to Tampa
--$79* each way to Fort Lauderdale
-- $79* each way to Fort Myers
-- $99* each way to Phoenix

    Good luck flying those guys, they charge you $100 at the gate for a carry on bag!
    Better to fly a real airline, which is every other airline at hopkins.

  • Dennis Vlack

    Have used Frontier 3 times Once out of CAK and twice out of CLE….NEVER had a carry-on charge…Just FOLLOW the RULES and everything is fine….

    • travel guru

      how long ago was that? so, if you don follow the “RULES” there is a $100 carry on fee!
      so they charge a fee to check a bag, if you want to carry it on there is another fee, if you want to pick your seat there is a fee, if you dont want to sit in the sardine section there is a fee, frontier should be called feetier!

  • Michael Belopotosky

    Flew Frontier last week with NO charges for carry- on and one check in. All airlines charge to pick your own seat!!!!

    • travel guru

      you must have had a high fare ticket, because if you book on expedia, travelocity, or orbits, feetier charges you for checked in and carry on bags!

    • travel guru

      united and southwest do not charge for a seat assignment, heck, southwest lets you check two bags free and carry on two bags free!

  • Steve Midland

    Southwest is a far, far better deal out of Cleveland. No carry on charges and no charges for checked bags on southwest. Not to mention southwest is a major airline with more experienced flight crews. Frontier is owned by the same company that pays their airline pilots 20k per year, a training ground for the big boys.

    The only way an airline like frontier can compete with the big boys is to be deceptive about their fees. $100 to take a carry on!

  • Wheres the special

    Odd, when I try to see rates from CLE to PHX, there are no non-stop nor a $99 special listed. ???

    • travel guru

      There is no special. After all the fees the flight to phoenix will cost you $399. Thanks Feetier!
