Frontier adding service from St. Augustine to Chicago, Philadelphia

Frontier Airlines announced Thursday that it will continue its service at St. Augustine's Northeast Florida Regional Airport with the addition of two nonstop routes to Philadelphia International Airport and Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

In a release from Frontier, the airline announced service to Chicago will begin on April 14, and service to Philadelphia will begin on April 15.

Flights between St. Augustine and Chicago will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays while flights to Philadelphia will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Fares in these new markets will be as low as $69 each way.

Frontier is putting its full summer schedule on sale Thursday for travel through Aug. 15. Including the St. Augustine service, Frontier Airlines has added 42 new routes throughout the United States.

"Travelers between big cities have enjoyed low fares while many markets have remained overpriced and underserved," said Frontier president Barry Biffle in a release. "Frontier's low fares in St. Augustine will benefit thousands of new fliers who are forced to drive because they haven't found affordable air travel options — or they simply stay at home. We see hundreds of additional opportunities like these throughout the country, fueling our growth for years to come."

Frontier started flying between St. Augustine and Trenton, New Jersey, in May 2014. That service is currently suspended.
