Frontier Airlines adds route from Miami to D.C. area

Just a month after announcing it will start flying out of Miami International Airport, Frontier Airlines said Monday it is adding another route.

Twice-weekly nonstop service between Miami and Washington Dulles International Airport starts Dec. 21. The low-cost airline will operate the Thursday and Sunday flights with a 168-seat Airbus A320.

Frontier previously announced that it will start flying from Miami to Denver, New York’s LaGuardia International Airport and Philadelphia on Dec. 20. Flights to Chicago O’Hare start Dec. 21.

The airline, which also has flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, is the only domestic low-cost carrier serving Miami International Airport.

“We’re thrilled that Frontier Airlines has already made the decision to expand their new lineup of flights from Miami,” Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González said in a statement. “The addition of non-stop, ‘low-fare’ service between MIA and Washington Dulles represents another strong travel option for our customers and another way that MIA is connecting our community to the nation and the world.”

Through Nov. 3, Frontier is offering a limited number of seats for an introductory fare of $59 each way on the route.
