Frontier Airlines announced Thursday that it will offer nonstop flights from Tulsa International Airport to San Antonio, Texas, beginning Aug. 12.
Frontier returned to the Tulsa market in March with the launch of service to Denver and has since added Orlando; Florida; San Diego and San Jose, California; and Washington, D.C., to its Tulsa routes.
The airline will offer flights between San Antonio International Airport and Tulsa on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays on an Airbus A319.
“We are pleased to add another nonstop destination from Tulsa,” Frontier spokesman Richard Oliver said in a statement. “With new service to San Antonio, we now serve six great nonstop destinations from Tulsa. We’re offering incredibly low fares and a reliable, friendly service that allows people to customize the travel experience to their needs and budget. This empowers more people than ever before to fly. It’s what our Low Fares Done Right philosophy is all about.”
Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum applauded the move.
“Air service connectivity is a key driver for Tulsa to continue to grow and thrive in the global marketplace, and we are making great strides to provide more nonstop flights for our citizens and businesses within the region,” he said in a statement. “The San Antonio, Texas, service will mark the 23rd nonstop flight from Tulsa International Airport and speaks volumes to the work of our Tulsa Airport Authority and staff to increase Tulsa’s reach to destinations across the country.”
Mark VanLoh is CEO of Tulsa International Airport.
“Frontier is connecting our travelers to destinations across the United States while providing low fares and reliable service,” he said in a statement. “We now have more nonstop flight options from Tulsa International Airport than ever before in the history of our airport.”
