Frontier Airlines is increasing its presence in Miami this winter by adding four seasonal non-stop flights at the Florida airport.

Starting in November, the airline will operate routes from Hartford, Connecticut (BDL); San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU); Boston (BOS) and Detroit (DTW) to Miami International (MIA), a popular winter destination.

Frontier Senior Vice President of Commercial Daniel Shurz says the carrier is the only ultra low-cost carrier serving these routes non-stop, though several carriers offer overlapping service from nearby Fort Lauderdale.

This is the second round of additional service to MIA that Frontier has added for this winter. Earlier this year, the ultra low-cost carrier added service to Cincinnati (CVG) and Cleveland (CLE), Ohio, as well as Las Vegas (LAS).

Several of the routes had been previously offered by Frontier, which has become known for quickly dropping routes that are not performing to its expectations.

All of Frontier’s new routes will be carried out on Airbus A320 family aircraft. Frontier’s expansion in Miami coincides with significant growth across its network, with system capacity scheduled to jump roughly 14% in 2019, Diio by Cirium data shows. It grew capacity by 12% in 2018.
