“With the addition of three new low-cost, nonstop options, travelers in the South Bay/Silicon Valley area will now have access to seven nonstop destinations in the spring,” said Frontier’s Shurz. “Even before our first flight has taken off from SJC the community support for our Low Fares Done Right product has been great and that’s why we are announcing three new cities today.”

Frontier Adds More Routes at SJC  
“We are pleased that Frontier Airlines has already decided to expand its presence at SJC, providing Silicon Valley travelers with even more convenient flight options across the U.S.,” said Liccardo. “I greatly appreciate the Frontier team for their confidence and continued investments in San José.”

“Frontier’s news today takes SJC to a new flight level as the addition of nonstop service to three more cities marks 50 nonstop destinations served from SJC,” said Director of Aviation John Aitken.

“Our community is well-served with Frontier which now offers service to seven U.S. cities – three which have been unserved and four which offer more choices for travelers.”

San Antonio service is a first from Silicon Valley’s airport. Cincinnati and Colorado Springs were served in the past and mark a welcomed return for travelers.

Additional nonstop service to Atlanta, Austin, Denver and Las Vegas gives travelers another choice in airline and flight times.
