Frontier adds flight between Cleveland, South Carolina coast


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Frontier Airlines is adding nonstop seasonal flights between Cleveland and a coastal South Carolina city.

News outlets report the low-cost carrier headquartered in Denver announced Monday that the route to and from Charleston will launch May 2. The airline’s website says flights will run each Thursday and Sunday through Aug. 11.

Frontier is offering introductory one-way fares starting at $39 if purchased by 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.

Frontier Senior Vice President of Commercial Daniel Shurz tells The Plain Dealer that Charleston’s status as a destination continues to grow.

He says the airline’s passenger numbers in Cleveland this June are projected to be 35 percent higher than the same time last year, and it will have an average 11 flights a day out of the Ohio city this summer.
