Frontier Airlines unveiled five more new routes on Wednesday, a move that comes on top of another eight the carrier announced just a day earlier.

All five of the latest routes are to leisure-oriented destinations that have been in high demand during the pandemic. The expansion also includes one new city that will be added to Frontier’s map: Rochester, New York.

Three of the five new routes are to Myrtle Beach, the South Carolina resort town known for beaches and golfing. Frontier will add seasonal service from Buffalo; Portland, Maine; and Providence, Rhode Island.

Frontier also is adding nonstop service connecting Rochester to Orlando and Miami to Montego Bay, Jamaica. The Rochester-Orlando route is slated to operate year-round, while the others are seasonal for the summer schedule.

In total, that gives Frontier 13 new routes announced during the past two days.

Atlanta was the biggest overall winner, landing six new nonstop routes on Frontier. Providence and Portland, Maine, also fared well, each landing three new nonstop routes.

Also just announced: Frontier Airlines adds 8 new routes, including 6 from Atlanta

Frontier’s route map update comes as U.S. airlines have begun rebuilding their schedules after dramatic cuts at the outset of the pandemic. Now, with leisure flyers leading a recovery in air travel, carriers have been particularly bullish on outdoor destinations that allow for social distancing.
