Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines said this week it will launch new nonstop service between Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport and several destination cities later this spring.

Frontier will create new twice-daily service from Bush airport (IAH) to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW). The carrier will launch an additional route between IAH and Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT) that will run 3 times a week as well as four times a week service between IAH and Chicago Midway (MDW). All of the new routes will launch in April.

Why it matters: The new Houston flights are part of a significant expansion the airline is making across 38 destinations nationwide between April and June.

“This is a massive expansion of our operation from coast to coast and internationally as part of our focus on growing in underserved and overpriced routes,” said Josh Flyr, Vice-President of Network and Operations Design for Frontier Airlines.

Denver-based Frontier roughly 557,000 passengers through Houston airports in the first 11 months of 2023, up 35% from the same period a year earlier.
