If you’re dreaming about going to the Caribbean this year, low-cost airline Frontier is launching new flight routes to popular islands from several cities in the United States.
Frontier Launching New Flights To Popular Caribbean Islands
This winter season Frontier will be launching a new service from Miami International Airport to Aruba and Turks and Caicos.
Miami-Aruba flights will operate Saturdays beginning Nov. 20, and Miami-Providenciales (Turks and Caicos) flights will operate Saturdays starting on Dec. 18.
All nations can visit Aruba and Turks and Caicos, with different rules based on the countries risk level.
Frontier will also be starting new flights to Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, and the Bahamas from Newark International Airport starting on December 17th. The airline will also run three times weekly flights from Philadelphia to Nassau (Bahamas) starting November 2nd.
Here are the Jamaica Covid-19 entry requirements.
These flights are part of the airline’s plan to expand to the Caribbean. In addition to the flights mentioned above, Frontier recently announced its first-ever flights to Antigua and Barbuda, with weekly Saturday flights out of Orlando starting December 4th.
Antigua and Barbuda is currently open for tourism – here are the entry requirements.
“The launch of the new service out of the busy Orlando airport opens up an important gateway to Antigua, with links to major US cities. We can now look forward to meeting the increased demand coming out of the US this winter and from all indications, we can also expect to see more competitive pricing brought on by Frontier Airlines’ affordable rates,” said Charles Fernandez, Minister of Tourism of Antigua and Barbuda.
Additionally, there will be a new weekly service from Orlando and Denver to Belize, with flights launching on Dec. 11.
Belize is open for tourism but recently announced that testing is required regardless of vaccination status.
Frontier has been adding new flights to the Caribbean as fast or faster as any other carrier. According to Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial, it is one of the largest international expansions for Frontier.
“Summer 2021 has led to phenomenal growth for Frontier,” Shurz said. “Frontier travelers now have more route options than ever before to explore, while at the same time knowing they’re flying on America’s Greenest Airline, with a young fleet that maximizes efficiency every flight.”
Frontier Is Requiring Direct Employees To Be Vaccinated
Shortly after United Airlines said it would require all employees to be vaccinated, Frontier announced a similar policy. The Airline says it will also require all direct employees to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 1, 2021.
“As we continue to watch the rapid increase of new COVID-19 cases across the United States caused by the Delta variant, I am concerned for the well-being of our team members, their families and friends,” said Chief Executive Officer Barry Biffle.
“The good news is that the vast majority of our employees have already taken this important step and have gotten vaccinated.”
The airline says employees who choose not to be vaccinated, or are unable to, will be tested regularly.
