Frontier Airlines Announces Service to Albany International Airport. Seats Available for $39 Each Way.

Beginning in September, Albany will have their first ultra low-cost carrier in Frontier Airlines. Frontier will fly to Denver beginning September 17th and Orlando from October 2nd. They have introductory fares for as low as $39 each way. This is a nice addition to the Capital Region as flights to Orlando will likely get cheaper on Southwest and JetBlue to better compete with Frontier. Flights to Denver on Southwest should also see downward pressure. If these flights do well, Frontier could make these year-round routes rather than seasonal and could potentionally open up ALB to other leisure destinations.  It could also attract another airline such as Spirit to start service at ALB.
