After nine years at IAH, Frontier Airlines is moving its operations to HOU

After nine years of serving customers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), Frontier Airlines has decided to move to Houston’s domestic airport, William P. Hobby (HOU) beginning on November 18, 2010.

The decision to move to Hobby Airport is a welcomed change for the Houston Airport System (HAS).

“Houston is excited about Frontier’s recent announcement to move to Hobby Airport,” says Genaro Peña, HAS air service development director. “Hobby has a casual and warm atmosphere that customers find welcoming and Frontier Airlines will fit in well.”

In addition to the three daily, non-stop flights that Frontier will provide to Denver at HOU, Houston customers can also take advantage of three new connections from Denver that currently are not served by nonstop service from Houston.

Two daily flights are available to Rapid City, South Dakota (RAP); two daily flight are available to Bozeman, Montana (BZN) and Fairbanks, Alaska (FAI) is available four days a week.

Frontier customers that visit Houston will have the advantage of being just seven miles from downtown Houston and near NASA and Galveston Island.

“Hobby Airport offers a great number of benefits to Frontier’s guests,” said Daniel Shurz, vice president of strategy and planning. “In addition to its newly refurbished terminal, Hobby offers Frontier’s guests easy access to downtown Houston and many popular tourist attractions in the area.”

Customers that are booked on Frontier flights to Bush Intercontinental on or after November 18, will automatically be rebooked on flights to Hobby.

Frontier Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc., an airline holding company that owns Chautauqua Airlines, Lynx Aviation, Midwest Airlines, Republic Airlines and Shuttle America.

Currently in its 17th year of operations, Frontier employs more than 5,500 aviation professionals and operates more than 550 daily flights from its hubs at Denver International Airport and Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport.
