The new passenger service will benefi t both business and leisure travel to and from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Since commercial service began at Gateway in October, 2007, the airport has served more than 3.4 million passengers. “ The non-stop connection between Denver and the Gateway region is a smart one and will expose Frontier passengers to a vibrant new visitor experience east of Phoenix,” Mesa Convention and Visitors Bureau President and CEO Marc Garcia said. “Denver has long been identified as a top producing feeder market for Arizona and business travel is gaining momentum according to the latest Arizona data. We anticipate the new service will also spark international visitation to Mesa and the southeast valley.”
Frontier Airlines is in its 19th year of operation. With Denver International Airport serving as its primary hub, Frontier offers service to more than 70 destinations in the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
“Seeing that Denver is the top air travel destination from Phoenix, this expansion into the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport allows us to further differentiate our product offering, providing greater convenience and access to customers living and working in the east valley communi-ty,” Greg Aretakis, Frontier vice president for network and revenue, said. “ We have received tremendous community support and look forward to bringing our high value, low fare service to East Valley travelers who currently have few customer friendly options.”
Tickets are on sale for flights to and from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Frontier is offering fares as low as $69 each way available for purchase through Saturday, Aug. 11 only at www.frontierairlines. com.
