Frontier Airlines announced today that it’s adding three new routes. Two are in the Caribbean and one is a direct shot at American Airlines as it flies between its two hubs: Miami International Airport (MIA) and Charlotte Douglass International Airport (CLT).

Nonstop service between San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) and Santiago’s Cibao International Airport in the Dominican Republic (STI) will launch on June 14th and run 3x weekly. Flights from San Juan to Barbados’ Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI) commence 3x weekly on July 3rd.

Josh Flyr, Vice President of Network and Operations Design at Frontier Airlines, said:

As we anticipate an exciting and potentially record-breaking summer travel season, we’re thrilled to further expand our route map. More destinations served means more affordable and convenient travel options for consumers across the U.S., Caribbean and beyond.”

The other news today has Frontier heading into two of American Airlines’ hubs with 3x weekly flights between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Charlotte Douglass International Airport (CLT) being added on July 5th. Frontier has recently been challenging American with new routes to/from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) recently added.

One-way fares on these new routes start as low as $29.

Anthony’s Take: Frontier has been making some interesting moves lately by invading some of American’s hubs. Its route network continues to grow and will hopefully continue to put price pressure on the legacy carriers.

Why do you want pressure put on AA by Frontier? Do you want to see Frontier go out of business? Airlines have basic economy already. AA will compete to defend their turf. You’ll wind up with more fees and more seats on planes, like they do in Europe to compete with Easyjet and Ryanair.
