Frontier Airlines is at it again.
The ultra low-cost carrier rolled out its fifth new-route announcement since last week, this time revealing an eight-route expansion that would add three new cities to its map. All told, Frontier has added 32 new routes and added eight new cities since last Tuesday (April 6).
In its latest round on Thursday, Frontier focused on routes to Florida and the Caribbean.

The three cities joining the airline’s route map are all international destinations Frontier will serve from Miami. Service to Nassau in the Bahamas begins in June while flights to Saint Martin and the Costa Rican capital of San Jose begin in July. The San Jose service returns Frontier to a city it last served in 2015.
Frontier will add a fourth route from Miami – to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – that will begin June 10.
Josh Flyr, Frontier’s vice president of network and operational design, told TPG that the carrier sees opportunity there to pick up a route no one else is currently flying. Spirit flies to Myrtle Beach from Fort Lauderdale, but no carrier currently flies there from Miami.
“We think there is demand in both directions,” Flyer said.
Once service from the latest announcement begins, Frontier says will fly to 34 destinations nonstop from Miami and eight from Myrtle Beach.
Elsewhere, Frontier will add two international routes from Orlando (Saint Martin and San Jose, Costa Rica) and another from Dallas/Fort Worth (Cancun, Mexico). That will give Frontier a total of 62 nonstop destinations from Orlando and 13 from DFW.
Also included in Thursday’s announcement is a once-weekly flight connecting San Juan, Puerto Rico, and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
