Frontier Airlines launches Montego Bay-Miami Service
On May 28, representatives from Frontier Airlines, Miami-Dade County and Jamaica hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Frontier’s inaugural departure from Miami International Airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Frontier is now flying three times per week to Montego Bay. The launch of Montego Bay service and four more routes by Frontier later this summer will bring its network at MIA to a total of 33 destinations – its highest number ever at the airport.
Congratulations to Frontier on launching the first of many new routes it will begin serving at MIA this summer, which will help to further strengthen the ongoing recovery of our local tourism industry. I am also extremely pleased to see additional flights to and from Jamaica, a country with which we share so many cultural ties, and one of the busiest destinations for our residents and visitors to Miami-Dade County.
In addition to Montego Bay, Frontier will start serving the following routes from MIA this summer: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (5x weekly) on June 10; Nassau, Bahamas (4x weekly) on June 24; San Jose, Costa Rica (2x weekly) on July 2; and St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles (1x weekly) on July 10. Frontier is also currently MIA’s third-busiest passenger airline in seat capacity.
We applaud Frontier for its robust and ongoing expansion of flights at MIA. Jamaica generates a total of more than half a million passengers to and from MIA annually, which makes it our 13th-busiest market. We look forward to welcoming even more of those passengers back to our airport, thanks to this additional service to Montego Bay by Frontier.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, the company operates more than 100 A320 family aircraft and has one of the largest A320neo fleet in the U.S.
We’re thrilled to launch nonstop flights from Miami to Montego Bay right in time for summer vacation. The addition of Jamaica boosts Frontier’s robust network map to 33 nonstop routes from MIA, our largest summer schedule ever in Miami. We look forward to welcoming travelers on board for an unforgettable trip to Jamaica this summer to explore its marvelous culture, activities, and picture-perfect views.
