Frontier Airlines is the latest carrier to unveil a big expansion as the industry continues to recover from the worst of the pandemic.

The Denver-based ultra low-cost carrier unveiled 21 new routes on Tuesday that grow its presence in three of its busier bases.

“We’re thrilled to continue growing with a new round of 21 nonstop routes that greatly expand our service in three major markets: Atlanta, Dallas and Las Vegas,” Daniel Shurz, Frontier's senior vice president of commercial, said in a statement. “Today’s announcement highlights our confidence in travel’s continued rebound for the rest of 2021 and beyond.”
