Sep 26, 2017

Frontier Airlines announced Tuesday it is launching  nonstop flights to Chicago-O’Hare and Philadelphia next year, with tickets going on sale now.

Earlier the airline announced future service from Jacksonville International Airport to Cincinnati and Denver, for a total of four destinations.

Frontier says the new service is launching with fares as low as $39 at flyfrontier.com.  However, the flights out of Jacksonville don't start until 2018. Frontier Airlines says the fare sale runs through 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 27, 2017. 

“We are excited to expand our commitment to the Jacksonville community with more low cost flight options,” said Tyri Squyres, vice president of marketing for Frontier Airlines in an email to WJCT News.
