This week Frontier Airlines is ready to offer new options to those residing in the Kansas City area. The airline with cute and fuzzy animals on its planes is getting ready to link Kansas City International Airport with both Houston-Hobby and Las Vegas. The new flights begin on November 1, so there’s plenty of time to prepare for your departure. Things are getting so busy for Frontier at MCI that they’re even adding a fifth gate for all their flights at the airport’s Terminal C. The new flights are available for booking right now, and if you act before August 29 the Houston flights can be had for $59 each way and you can get lucky with the Vegas flights for $89.
If you’re looking for somewhere warm and beachy to get you through the upcoming winter there’s always Aruba, and it’s especially convenient now that AirTran is flying nonstop right out of Baltimore/Washington International Airport. New flights begin right before Christmas on December 17, so it’s totally fine if you want to put one of these flights on your list for Santa. One-way flights start at just $159 as long as you book by September 16 and take your trip before March 14. For those looking for a different slice of sunshine—no problem—Bermuda, Montego Bay, Cancun, Nassau, and San Juan are all just a nonstop flight away from Baltimore thanks to AirTran.
· Spirit Airlines:
We’re just doing our due diligence here and reporting that there’s a new flight option from the folks over at Spirit Airlines. This week the airline that everyone loves—to hate—started up some new nonstop service between Chicago-O’Hare and Dallas-Fort Worth. To us this new route seems a little strange from the ultra low cost carrier, as they’re usually focused on budget conscious leisure travelers; however, these two cities scream expense report business travelers. Either way it’s a new route, so it’s good news and we wish them good luck—kinda.
