DENVER, CO - Frontier Airlines is adding a new nonstop service location right here in the Valley to make traveling easier for residents.
Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport travelers will have more options for nonstop service flights beginning in November.
Mesa Mayor and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority Board Chair Scott Smith said in a press release that the addition of Frontier flights makes national and international travel much easier by offering fewer plane changes on long trips.
“Frontier’s announcement of service to its Denver hub makes Gateway Airport a literal gateway to the world,” Smith said.
Denver is the top air travel destination from Phoenix, according to Frontier vice president Greg Aretakis, and they hope that their expansion will bring better customer service and more options to east Valley travelers.
"It expands the number of places we can go, and it's so much easier for us. So much easier," one traveler, Robin Williams said.
Although some are concerned increased traffic will bring more airport noise, airport officials said they work to decrease the impact on the community.
"We work with the community, we work with the pilots of the airlines, and make sure everyone is aware of the sensitive areas, and we work to minimize those impacts," spokesperson, Brian Sexton said.
The airline will be operating 138-seat Airbus 319 aircrafts with television service, stretch seating and other flight options.
Frontier will be celebrating their new daily flights from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport to Denver beginning November 15 by having a special low-price ticket deal.
Through August 11, travelers can purchase tickets to Denver on their website for as low as $69 each way including all taxes and fees.
