Cleveland - Frontier Airlines passengers getting some big news Tuesday at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
The Airline will be offering new flight routes to Miami and Fort Lauderdale this coming fall.
"Frontier will be the only airline serving all three airports in South Florida because these flights join our others that fly into West Palm Beach," says Senior Vice President of Commerical at Frontier Daniel Shurz. "We've been in Cleveland for a number of years and have seen an increase in demand for leisure destinations so this was a pretty easy decision to increase our service."
The flights will begin taking off to Miami and Fort Lauderdale in October. Frontier also celebrated their five millionth passenger flying out of Cleveland Hopkins Tuesday. The lucky flyer won four $250 flight vouchers to use at her leisure.
"It was nice because she had one small child in her lap, we love to help her out and these vouchers basically give her four round-trip flights for free," said Shurz.
The added flights now also add to the many Florida destinations you can fly to from Frontier. The airline will now support flights to seven difference cities, including Tampa and Orlando as well.
