Frontier Airlines adds routes to Puerto Rico from Atlanta and Miami
SAN JUAN – As of Oct. 5, Frontier Airlines will expand its operations in Puerto Rico’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) with routes from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) and Miami’s International Airport (MIA).
The MIA-SJU route will operate with one daily flight, while the ATL-SJU route will operate with three weekly flights, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló and Puerto Rico Tourism Co. (PRTC) Executive Editor José Izquierdo announced in a written statement.
Frontier, which began operations to San Juan from Orlando’s International Airport (MCO) and Philadelphia’s International Airport (PHL) on June 11, will become the second airline to fly the ATL-SJU (Delta) and MIA-SJU (American Airlines) routes.
It is estimated that Frontier’s new flights, combined, will bring more than 65,000 travelers to the island, which will have an annual economic impact of roughly $14.7 million.
Frontier is expected during the following weeks to confirm additional routes to SJU, which will begin to operate in the spring of 2018.
“We are enthusiastic about the diversification of air routes that will make it easier for more tourists to visit us and get to know firsthand the quality of services and the beauty of our island,” the governor said.
“This is an additional example that Puerto Rico continues to be a highly attractive location for airlines and the tourism industry in general,” the PRTC executive director adds in the release.
