“Summer 2021 is quickly approaching, and we’re excited to expand our network with eight new routes beginning in June,” Frontier senior VP Daniel Shurz said.

“We’re listening to our customers and adding routes to popular summer destinations known for their sun-filled activities. At Frontier, we’re all about making it possible for more people to fly more often with affordable fares and convenient service.”

The new routes are in addition to 16 routes the carrier announced just last week, another indication that leisure traffic is rebounding more quickly than business traffic in the US as the COVID-19 pandemic passes.
