Frontier Airlines will begin service to five new international destinations from Atlanta, the carrier said this week.
The ultra-low-cost airline will roll out the routes this fall, including service to Nassau in the Bahamas and Kingston, Jamaica. The new offerings will more than double Frontier's international service from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
"This international expansion marks an exciting milestone for Frontier at ATL," Jake Filene, senior vice president, customers at Frontier said in a news release. "We now offer an extensive range of flight options, including an impressive roster of international destinations, providing Atlanta-area consumers even more opportunities to enjoy our 'Low Fares Done Right.' With the addition of these new routes, Frontier now serves 36 nonstop destinations in total from ATL."
The expansion comes after Frontier and Spirit Airlines agreed to terminate a merger proposal in July, clearing the way for approval of JetBlue's takeover bid for Spirit.
