Those time-consuming and expensive trips to DIA could soon become a thing of the past. Frontier Airlines has announced a huge expansion to its service to Colorado Springs, with the addition of direct flights to 7 cities: Washington-Dulles, San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago-O’Hare, Tampa, and Ft. Myers. City leaders have been working for years on improving the performance and passenger traffic at the Colorado Springs airport, so they’re pretty excited about the changes. Local business and leisure travelers should be excited, too. If the additional flights generate enough interest, Frontier and other airlines will probably respond with even more direct flights, and could potentially bring us back to the boom days of the 1990’s. Frontier’s got $29 one-way offerings today only, so book your flight now!
