Frontier Airlines is having a busy May at Tampa International Airport.
The airline kicked off the first of four new nonstop flights from TIA during a May 4 ceremony. That flight, operating three times a week, is to Rafael Hernández International Airport in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony included cake, music, giveaways and a visit from a Frontier mascot, Powder the Bear, according to a statement.
The Aguadilla flight is the airport’s first scheduled nonstop service between Tampa and the town on Puerto Rico's west coast. Frontier already offers daily nonstop service to San Juan, according to a previous statement from the airport. Frontier, in total, will now have 20 nonstop flights from Tampa.
“Frontier’s new nonstop service to Aguadilla will help serve both Puerto Rico and the Tampa Bay region’s extensive community with ties to the island, which also sees hundreds of passengers traveling in each direction every day,” TIA CEO Joe Lopano says in the release.
The other Frontier nonstop flights debuting in May include:
- May 11: Phoenix (PHX)
- May 21: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ)
- May 22: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (SDQ)
