PHILIPSBURG--US Airline Frontier will return to St. Maarten with its non-stop service from MCO Orlando, Florida, starting Saturday, June 10.
Minister of Tourism, Economic Affairs, Transportation and Telecommunication (TEATT) Arthur Lambriex, announced Frontier's return on Sunday evening after what he describes as a series of high-level discussions between the Airline and his Ministry in recent weeks.
Frontier will offer one weekly flight on Saturday, departing St. Maarten at 1:43pm and arriving in Orlando at 5:13pm. The three-hour-and-thirty-minute-non-stop flight to the US is a welcomed addition that will boost summer travel from the US, it was stated in a press release.
Lambriex said, "June 10, 2023, marks an exciting milestone as we welcome the restart of Frontier's flights from Orlando to St. Maarten. We are happy to have Frontier back in our skies, connecting two magical destinations and opening doors to travel possibilities. This renewed partnership signifies our commitment to providing exceptional air connectivity and showcasing the beauty and hospitality of St. Maarten."
Frontier promises to offer its signature "ultra-low fares" to travellers and is currently offering the GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Fall and Winter Pass™ for a limited time at a special discounted price of US $299.
Lambriex said his Ministry and St. Maarten, in general, are pleased to extend "our warmest welcome to Frontier and express our gratitude to all involved in making this endeavour a reality. Together, we will create memorable travel experiences and reinforce St. Maarten's position as a premier Caribbean destination." He said, "Fly with Frontier, embrace the maagic of St. Maarten, and let your journey begin."
According to the release, Frontier Airlines is committed to "low fares done right." Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, the company operates 125 A320 family aircraft and has the largest A320neo family fleet in the US. The use of these aircraft, Frontier's seating configuration, weight-saving tactics and baggage process have all contributed to Frontier's continued ability to be the most fuel-efficient of all major US carriers when measured by available seat miles (ASMs) per fuel gallon consumed. With more than 220 new Airbus planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow and deliver affordable travel across America.
