Low-cost airline Frontier announced Wednesday that it will debut service between Las Vegas and two cities in Mexico this summer. Frontier will launch nonstop service from Harry Reid International Airport to Guadalajara and Monterrey, Mexico beginning in May and June 2022.
“We are thrilled to announce the start of service from Harry Reid International Airport to Guadalajara and Monterrey, Mexico, further expanding our international offering as the only U.S. carrier providing nonstop international service from Las Vegas,” Said the CEO of Frontier.
The airline is also adding new routes from Houston to Cancun, Tampa to Cancun, and Dallas to Cancun. Mexico became an even bigger tourist destination during the pandemic due to its relaxed COVID rules. Frontier’s move here is a clear indication that they think this trend will continue.
Frontier Has Had A Good Year
The airline just recently announced a merger with Spirit to become a massive low cost airline. Frontier will be purchasing Spirit with those shareholders controlling just over 50% of the company. The merger represents a huge increase in airport availability for customers who use each airline. With more than 1000 flights flying from well over 100 airports across the country, budget options are going to be even more readily available.
The airline saw a lot of extra travel during the pandemic from travelers looking to head towards it’s Florida destinations from New York and the midwest.

You Might Want To Book Your Flight Now
If you’re thinking about booking a vacation this summer, you might want to start booking now. Fuel costs are skyrocketing, hitting the highest costs of all time in the US. The war in Ukraine is raging and some countries, like the US and UK, are turning away from using Russian oil. This price increase will be passed from the airlines to consumers in time, making the fares of flights rise with the price of oil.
