Travel can be cruel: the airlines giveth and the airlines taketh away. Although Breeze Airways, British Airways and Willa Air have opened up a bunch of new routes, Frontier is calling it quits on 14 different routes, as reported by MSN and The Points Guy. And for those who fly in and out of Rochester, NY, you’re out of luck as Frontier is pulling out of that airport altogether.
If you already have tickets booked, you’ll get a full refund, but depending on how soon your flight is, it may be hard to find a ticket that isn’t astronomically priced. That’s especially true if you were hoping to fly for Spring Break.
The Points Guy makes a good call in noticing that more than half of the routes Frontier is cutting are ones that they just introduced. The route from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Phoenix is just two months old, and flights out of Fort Lauderdale to Chicago, Las Vegas and Phoenix are four months old.
All is not lost: Frontier is going to open eight new routes to Puerto Rico, and you can still jump in on the All-You-Can-Fly pass for summer which gives you unlimited flying between May 2 and Sept. 30.
Here are the routes that will be cut:
Bradley (Windsor Locks, CT) to Denver – ends April 20
Logan (Boston) to Miami – ends April 18
Baltimore to Harry Reid (Las Vegas) – ends May 10
Fort Lauderdale to Harry Reid – ends May 10
