Frontier Airlines to add flight from Fargo to Orlando
Service to start in early November
FARGO — Frontier Airlines announced Tuesday, July 27, that they will soon offer twice weekly flights to Orlando, home of Disney World, from Hector International Airport in Fargo.
The nonstop flights will be on Thursdays and Sundays and start on Nov. 4.
The company lists the initial offering at $69.
Airport Executive Director Shawn Dobberstein said the airline, which has been in and out of the Fargo market a number of times over the past 30 years, is currently flying to and from Fargo to Denver four to five times per week.
Orlando will be a new market, he said, and they will fly to the main airport in the central Florida city.
Allegiant Airlines has also been offering two flights per week to Orlando, but with arrival at a different airport called the Sanford Airport which is next door to Orlando.
Frontier has been operating continuously out of Hector International since May 15, 2018, offering two to five flights per week depending on the season, Dobberstein said.
Frontier did operate seasonal flights to/from Phoenix a couple of years ago, Dobberstein said. That started about the same time that American Airlines started seasonal operations to Phoenix.
Dobberstein said American would resume its seasonal service to Phoenix later this year.
Tuesday's announcement was made by Frontier's Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial operations, who said they were adding 17 new routes to Orlando, including one to and from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, too.
He said the company has had "phenomenal growth" this summer.
