“We are proud to expand our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right in Hartford,” said Jonathan Freed, Director of Corporate Communications for Frontier Airlines. “Frontier is always looking for ways to make travel easier and more affordable, and our reimagined frequent flier program with family-friendly benefits and attainable elite status, as well as our reduced change fees – free if you make changes more than 90 days before you fly – are the latest examples of what we mean by Low Fares Done Right.”

“We are excited to see Frontier Airlines’ expansion at Bradley International Airport, less than a month after we celebrated the announcement that they will begin operations at Bradley this year,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E, Executive Director of the CAA. “The nonstop flights to Raleigh-Durham and Orlando are a welcome addition to our menu of nonstop flights. We look forward to the low fares and convenience that Frontier Airlines’ growing presence at Bradley International Airport will bring to our passengers.”

The service to Raleigh-Durham will commence on April 30, on an Airbus A320. It will operate seasonally on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

The service to Orlando will commence on May 1, on an Airbus A321. It will operate seasonally on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

In December 2018, the Connecticut Airport Authority and Frontier Airlines announced the launch of Frontier Airlines’ inaugural service out of Bradley International Airport to Denver, which is scheduled to commence on March 28.
