Frontier Airlines is boosting its presence in Las Vegas with seven new routes to points across its network as it continues to grow by double digits.
The Denver-based ultra low-cost carrier will add flights to Phoenix on Sept. 6; and to Los Angeles and Miami on Sept. 10. From Nov. 14, Frontier will begin flying from Las Vegas to Orange County, California; Portland, Oregon; Reno, Nevada; and Seattle, the company announced today. The routes will operate year-round with frequencies ranging from four-times-a-week to daily on Airbus A320 family aircraft.
In addition to the new Las Vegas routes, Frontier will offer winter seasonal service to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Miami from Cleveland from Oct. 10.
The airline is one of the fastest growing in the US, with system capacity scheduled to jump roughly 14% in 2019, Diio by Cirium data shows. It grew capacity by 12% in 2018.

Frontier will face stiff competition on the new Las Vegas routes. Southwest Airlines operates all of the routes except Miami, while Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Spirit Airlines, Sun Country Airlines and United Airlines serve at least one of the markets.
Las Vegas has a strong local market driven by both leisure and conference demand. One senior airline executive said recently that capacity to many secondary US markets from the Nevada city has shrunk in the past decade, creating an opportunity for new point-to-point service.
On the new Cleveland routes, Frontier will compete with JetBlue Airways, Southwest, Spirit and United to Fort Lauderdale, and American to Miami, the Diio data shows.
Frontier previously operated Cleveland-Fort Lauderdale from 2014-2015, and Cleveland-Miami from 2017-2018, according to the data. It also operated the Las Vegas-Miami route from 2015-2018.
