Cincinnati airport gets new service to Washington

HEBRON, Ky. (AP) — Frontier Airlines will add nonstop service from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to the nation's capital beginning this fall.

Cincinnati airport officials say the service to Dulles International Airport near Washington will be offered four times a week beginning Sept. 8.

The Cincinnati airport's CEO says Washington is a top destination for business and leisure passengers. The airport is across the river from Cincinnati in Hebron, Kentucky.

Denver-based Frontier already offers nonstop service from the Cincinnati airport to Denver and to Trenton, New Jersey.

The new service will operate with 168-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. Frontier will offer the flights on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
