Frontier Airlines Adds 14 New Routes to Orlando

Almost everyone traveling to Orlando is looking for ways to save on their Walt Disney World trip, and getting there can take up a huge chunk of the vacation budget. Finding a cheap flight can help to keep costs under control, and it is even better to find a flight that is direct. That way you can save both time and money.

According to a report from, Frontier Airlines has added 14 nonstop routes in and out of Orlando International Airport. They include cities such as El Paso, Texas; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. There are new international routes as well to cities such as Cozumel, Mexico and Montego Bay, Jamaica. Some of the new routes are already up and running, the rest will start by November 11.

Frontier Airlines is known for its amazingly low fares. Before you book, you need to be aware of how the system works. The fare you see when you search will be the price for just your flight. It includes one bag that fits under your seat and that is it. If you would like to bring a carry-on bag that will cost extra, as will a checked bag. You will also pay for your seat selection. Purchase any extras when you book because the price will go up the closer you get to your flight. You can also purchase a bundle that includes some of the extras.

If you plan to fly Frontier often, consider purchasing Den Deals. This is the airline’s savings club, and your membership will be good for one year. The discount may be only a few dollars, or it could be significant. You might also want to sign up to receive emails from Frontier, because they offer deals and savings codes often.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
