Frontier adds flights from Cincinnati-area airport

CINCINNATI (AP) — Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines is doubling its service from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Frontier will begin daily flights to Dallas-Fort Worth on Oct. 26, with multi-day service also coming to Las Vegas, Nevada; Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Phoenix.

The five new destinations give Frontier 10 from the airport in northern Kentucky. Frontier began flying out of the airport in 2013, bringing a budget alternative to an airport long known for high fares.

The new service will operate on 138-seat A319 aircraft. Frontier kicked off the new offerings Thursday with limited, temporary fares as low as $14.99 one way.

Frontier earlier announced plans to begin service from northern Kentucky starting Sept. 8 to Washington D.C.

Low-fare rival Allegiant Air has also been expanding service from the airport.
