Frontier Airlines returning to Fargo with three weekly nonstop flights to Denver beginning Nov. 16
Frontier Airlines is returning to Fargo's Hector International Airport, announcing today that it will provide three weekly nonstop flights between Fargo and Denver starting Nov. 16.
"We are pleased to hear Frontier Airlines is returning to Fargo-Moorhead. Business and leisure travelers in our community and surrounding region are delighted to hear the good news," Shawn Dobberstein, the airport's executive director, said in a news release. "We look forward to enhancing our partnership with Frontier to expand air service opportunities in our market that support our business community and leisure travelers."
Frontier last served Fargo in 2010 with a 74-seat regional turboprop aircraft. The new service will use the 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft, which Frontier said will reduce flight times and offer more amenities for passengers.
The nonstop flights from Denver to Fargo will depart at 7:10 p.m. and arrive at 9:55 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Fargo-to-Denver flights will depart at 10 a.m. and arrive at 10:55 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
