Low-cost carrier Frontier is beefing up its presence at American’s Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) hub. It announced today that it’s adding 10 new destinations this summer, which increases daily departures by 47% this summer.

Frontier will serve a total of 39 destinations with an average 44 daily departures this summer from Philadelphia. New flights include:

  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (daily; starts on May 21st)
  • John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) (3x weekly; starts on May 22nd)
  • Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) (daily; starts on May 16th)
  • Indianapolis International Airport (IND) (3x weekly; starts on May 21st)
  • Kansas City International Airport (MCI) (3x weekly; starts on May 22nd)
  • Knoxville McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS) (3x weekly; starts on May 16th)
  • Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) (3x weekly; starts on May 16th)
  • Pensacola International Airport (PNS) (3x weekly; starts on May 22nd)
  • Portland International Jetport (PWM) (3x weekly; starts on May 16th)
  • St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) (4x weekly; starts on May 22nd)


Barry Biffle, CEO of Frontier Airlines, said:

From the Midwest to the East Coast and from Maine to Florida, these new routes span much of the country and represent our continued commitment to growth from PHL. In fact, PHL will see the second largest increase in daily departures on Frontier this summer among our major operational bases.”

Anthony’s Take: Frontier is coming in hot in Philadelphia. This will likely not sit well with American. We’ll have to wait and see how it replies and if it adds flights or cuts fares on these routes.
