Continuing an unprecedented surge in growth at Ontario International Airport (ONT), Frontier Airlines announced it is adding daily, non-stop service to Orlando International Airport (MCO) this summer.
Frontier’s move comes just a few months after it began service at ONT and is another powerful indication that Southern California’s newest aviation gateway has become an attractive option for the region’s air travelers. The new flight will be the only nonstop to Florida from any airport in the L.A. area other than Los Angeles International Airport.
“Our goal from the start was to provide convenient and competitively priced air service at Ontario for leisure and business travelers from the Inland Empire, Orange County and Eastern Los Angeles County,” said Alan D. Wapner, President of the Ontario International Airport Authority. “Frontier’s decision is a clear sign that travelers see the value of the seamless and hassle-free experience they get at Ontario.”
“The Inland Empire and surrounding area continue to respond well to our Low Fares Done Right philosophy,” said Josh Flyr, Vice President of Network Planning for Frontier. “We are proud to further our commitment and bring even more low fares to Ontario, now with four non-stop destinations. With low fares and friendly and reliable service, we look forward to continuing to bring affordable air travel to the community.”
Frontier’s daily Orlando flight will begin on August 13 and will mark the first-ever non-stop service from Ontario to Florida. The outbound flight will depart from ONT at 12:59 am and land in Orlando at 8:47 am. The Airbus A320 will return from Orlando at 9:27 pm and land in ONT at 11:30 pm.
