Huntsville International Airport adds a new airline in hopes of saving you some money.
Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines announced it will begin flights from HSV this October. Frontier will offer non-stop flights from Huntsville International Airport to Orlando and Denver. To celebrate, Frontier is offering a special introductory fare.
"Your transportation grid just got bigger, you have more places to go and your ticket prices got lower," said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle.
Frontier Airlines revealed today that it will begin its service at Huntsville International Airport with fares as low as $39 one-way.
"Our community has literally been begging for lower fares so now we have an ultra low-cost carrier that's going to provide low, low fares,” Rick Tucker, Executive Director of Huntsville International Airport said.
Headquartered in Denver, Frontier Airlines serves more than 80 cities in the US, Mexico and Dominican Republic. The low-cost carrier focuses on offering flyers the ability to customize their travel to their needs and budget.
"You can purchase all of our extras. Seats, bags things like that al a carte, which gives our customers a choice, or you can purchase one of our bundles. One is called 'The Works,' it conveniently provides everything at one low price," explained Stephan Shaw Frontier spokesperson.
Two lucky people won free flights to Denver and Orlando at HSV's big reveal this morning.
"I'm so excited, I can barely speak. I opened the envelope and I was like, I just saw $500 airfare and then I just... yeah it's awesome," exclaimed Karin Cranford.
Huntsville International Airport has been working since 2005 to bring Frontier on board.
"We're about trying to provide the service that would allow you to stay at your hometown airport and not have to go outside this service area in order to get the air service that you need," Tucker added.
Service with Frontier will begin in October but flyers can begin booking their trips now.
