A Whole Different Animal Arrives in Memphis
On May 12, Frontier Airlines started flying routes from Memphis to Denver, Colorado, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Orlando, Florida.
Frontier's first flight landed in Memphis from Denver at 2:40 p.m. Passengers were met with balloons, entertainment and even an Elvis impersonator to add to the festive atmosphere.
Frontier's daily flights to Denver connect Memphis with 20 destinations in the West, Canada and Mexico including Los Angeles, Phoenix, Seattle, Calgary and Los Cabos. The non-stop flights to Orlando and Las Vegas allows Frontier to provide a high level of service to two of North America's top vacation and convention destinations from the heart of the Mid-South.
Frontier anticipates that the new flights will bring more than 50,000 passengers through Memphis each year. This translates into more than $15 million in annual tourist dollars for Memphis and the surrounding cities and towns.
Passengers can travel in comfort with a spacious 33 inches of legroom – plenty of room to stretch out, relax and enjoy the personal video monitors at every seat with 24 channels of DIRECTV and a choice of three pay-per-view movies.
Frontier prides itself on providing affordable fares with full service to its customers in all markets. Service features include advanced seat assignments, electronic ticketing, curbside check-in, online check-in and the EarlyReturns mileage program.
