Fast-expanding low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is adding another new destination in the Caribbean, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The carrier will begin operating nonstop flights from Miami to Nassau, The Bahamas starting this summer. The new route, the carrier’s latest out of its growing Miami hub, will operate four times each week beginning June 24.
“We’re thrilled to add Nassau to our route map with nonstop Miami flights beginning this summer,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial at Frontier Airlines. “This world-class destination is known for its beautiful beaches, countless outdoor activities and is a great place to make unforgettable memories with family and friends this summer and we’re excited to offer Bahamians a low-fare way to Miami.”
Frontier has been steadily expanding its Caribbean operations out of Miami, having launched new service across the region in the last year.
“We are looking forward to offering high frequency options for flights to The Bahamas for our neighbors in Miami on Frontier Airlines,” said Dionsio D’Aguilar, Bahamas Minister ofTourism and Aviation. “The market is one that remains a high priority and we are excited to welcome visitors to our beautiful shores with convenient flight options this summer.”
The move adds to already-vast flight options to The Bahamas for travelers in Miami, where American Airlines already operates as may as five flights a day to Nassau alone.
