Frontier Airlines launched new non-stop service from William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) to Kansas City International Airport (MCI).

Frontier Airlines is connecting Houston and Kansas City with a morning departure, with the inaugural flight between the two destinations taking off on November 1.

The flight departs Kansas City each morning at 9:10 a.m. and arrives in Houston at at 11:00 a.m.  Houston passengers bound for Kansas City will see a departure time of 11:30 a.m.

“Frontier Airlines has had a very smooth transition to Hobby Airport and this added service is further proof of that fact,” says Houston Airport System’s director of air service development Genaro Peña. “Their commitment to the low cost business model is a perfect fit for the culture that’s been established at Hobby Airport.”

After serving customers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport for nine years, Frontier made the move to Hobby Airport on November 18, 2010, citing the airport’s reputation for affordability and its proximity to downtown as major factors in their decision making process.

“We’re excited to expand our low-fare, nonstop service to include a new destination from Kansas City - including the only nonstop to Houston’s convenient close-to-downtown Hobby airport,” said Daniel Shurz, vice president of strategy and planning for Frontier. “We look forward to introducing even more travelers to ‘a whole different animal.’”

Service on the new route will be provided on a 99-seat Embraer 190 aircraft, which features no middle seats and available STRETCH seating with up to five inches of additional legroom on every flight.

The new service will maintain the schedule shown below:






9:10 a.m.

11:00 a.m.



11:30 a.m.

1:15 p.m.


Members of Frontier’s Early Returns frequent flyer program can earn double miles for every qualifying trip they take on the new Houston route through December 17, 2011.
