SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and airline executives made a major announcement Thursday regarding new air service.
The low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines will begin offering seasonal nonstop flights from SAV/HH Int'l Airport to Denver and Philidelphia - beginning in May. The new service to Denver will be the first to fly to the city and the longest nonstop route from Savannah.
"Savannah is exciting. Savannah is just a wonderful place to visit. Who doesn't want to visit Savannah, and who from Savannah doesn't want to visit Denver or Philadelphia," said Jonathan Freed, Frontier Airlines.
"It's always a good opportunity for us to open new markets and new prospects for visitors. Attracting people from that part of the country is something we haven't had the ability to do because of air service," said Joseph Marinelli, President, Visit Savannah.
The introductory rate for the Denver route will cost $59. The Philadelphia route will cost $39.
Frontier Airlines is committed to delivering 'Low Fares Done Right' to nearly 90 cities in the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic and Mexico on more than 300 daily flights. Headquartered in Denver, Frontier Airlines is the proud recipient of the Federal Aviation Administration's 2016 Diamond Award for maintenance excellence and was named the industry's most fuel-efficient airline by The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) as a result of superior technology and operational efficiencies.
