Ultra-low fare carrier Frontier Airlines celebrated the opening of a new crew base at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Frontier Airlines President and CEO Barry Biffle and DFW Airport Vice President of Airline Relations Milton De La Paz joined members of Team Frontier for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the occasion. The base is expected to employ up to 120 pilots and 220 flight attendants within its first year of operation. Combined with maintenance and airport positions, the airline is expected to generate more than $78 million annually in local wages with further growth anticipated in the coming years. Frontier has been the fastest growing carrier at DFW since 2019.

To celebrate the occasion, America’s Greenest Airline is offering fares from DFW starting at $39* to four new nonstop destinations from DFW. Those destinations, which started this month, include Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ), San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) Cleveland (CLE), and New York LaGuardia (LGA). With the new service, Frontier will serve 21 destinations from DFW, making Frontier the airport’s third largest carrier based on destinations served.

The summer pass allows access to unlimited flights over the course of five months, from May through September. Terms and conditions apply and are available on Frontier’s website.
