Frontier Airlines is announcing plans to add three non-stop flights each week to the Siouxland area from its hub in Denver, Colorado.
Sioux City, Iowa, airport director Curt Miller says customers can start booking seats on flights now that will start flying in June.
Miller says the first flight into Sioux City will be June 12th, while the first flight back to Denver will be in the morning on June 13th. Miller says Frontier will use a larger jet for these flights.
“They’re flying Airbus 319 aircraft, which is about 138-seat jet aircraft, so it’s a larger jet than we’ve had here for awhile,” Miller says. “But again, they are doing three flights a week, so that gives us quite a bit of capacity for people who want to go west.”
Frontier is celebrating the new service by offering some flights as low as $49 each way. Frontier last provided air service to Sioux City between 2007 and 2008.
