Frontier Service from Denver to Harrisburg and Knoxville Takes Flight

13:08 EDT Monday, April 22, 2013

DENVER (Business Wire) -- Frontier Airlines today returns nonstop service between its Denver, Colo. (DEN), hub and both Harrisburg, PA (MDT) and Knoxville, TN (TYS). Both routes will operate seasonally with three weekly nonstop flights. To celebrate this service, fares as low as $147* are available until May 22 at

“We are excited to bring back our low fare, friendly service to the west back to customers in east Tennessee and central Pennsylvania,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier's senior vice president, commercial. “Travelers in the area will enjoy our great deals to Denver and other destinations in the west aboard our comfortable A319 aircraft, featuring DIRECTV® service in every seatback and five rows of STRETCH seating and will have a chance to discover all the improvements we have made to over the past few months.”

“The central PA region is thrilled about the return of Frontier's high quality, affordable nonstop service to Denver—one of our top business and leisure travel destinations,” said Timothy J. Edwards, executive director of Harrisburg International Airport. “In addition, throughout the summer and fall, we look forward to welcoming Frontier fliers as they come to visit Hershey, Lancaster, Harrisburg, and the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.”

The service to Denver complements Frontier's year-round nonstop service between Harrisburg and Orlando International Airport in Orlando, FL (MCO).

“Frontier Airlines has been a valued partner in the past, and we welcome their return to our market," said Howard Vogel, chairman of the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority's Board of Commissioners. "Frontier's competitive fare structure allows our business and leisure travelers from East Tennessee to access Denver and destinations beyond, during the busy spring and summer travel season.
