Frontier Airlines re-adds Baltimore as a Destination

Frontier Is Returning to Charm City


A Frontier Airbus A320 begins takeoff roll out of Denver

The low-cost Denver based carrier Frontier has announced on Tuesday, December 18, that they will be making a return to Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport this coming spring of 2019.

This will be the first time Frontier has served BWI since its departure in 2015. They will be making four weekly round-trip flights from BWI to Denver in their most common aircraft in their fleet, the Airbus A320. This addition will add even more competition to the already two airlines that have nonstop service to Denver from Baltimore, Southwest and United.

“We are pleased to welcome Frontier Airlines, which will provide new travel options and more low fares for our customers,” Ricky Smith, executive director of BWI-Marshall, said in a statement. “This new service is an excellent fit as Frontier is a low-fare leader in the industry and BWI-Marshall Airport remains the low-cost gateway to Maryland and the entire national capital region.”

“We are proud to bring our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right to Baltimore, which will be the 105th city in Frontier’s network,” Daniel Shurz, senior vice president for Frontier Airlines, said in a statement. “Frontier’s new service to Denver will make air travel more accessible and affordable for everyone in the greater Baltimore-Washington area. We look forward to making it easier for people to fly, and for people to fly more often.”


What does this mean for BWI?

With Frontier’s return, this will be the second airline to announce service to BWI just in 2018 alone. I think that stat alone makes a huge statement to the other Washington area airports by a mile. Baltimore has seen a huge increase in passenger counts just this year alone so it completely makes sense why more airlines want to start service to BWI. With this addition alone, it will bring passengers more choice out of Baltimore than any other airport in the Washington DC area.

Mixed feelings on this one…
It’s always great to have new carriers at BWI, but Frontier is not one of my favorites.
What I also find interesting is that F9 now will be serving all three D.C. area airports, I always assumed that F9 would stick with KIAD and KDCA.

Exciting to hear! Frontier also announced today that they are returning to BDL with 3x-weekly service to DEN. Looking forward to seeing how this works out for them!

Woah, didn’t see it coming. Gives me more options now but sadly hope they don’t add any extra routes. I’m team SWA 😬. Wonder if they’ll use terminal D because there’s not too much space for them, does that mean possibly another expansion? I wonder if they will start dominating here like spirit has. Interesting though

I thought SWA would stick with KBWI and KIAD but they came back to DCA. Maybe there’s the demand at all three. Hard to predict these things isn’t it.
