Frontier Launches Service From Boston Logan International Airport

The airline plans several new flights from Boston to various destinations

Low-fare carrier, Frontier Airlines has initiated service from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) for the first time. The new route will fly from Boston to Orlando International Airport (MCO), taking off around lunch time and arriving in Orlando in time for a swim at the hotel and an evening spent in one of the city’s celebrated theme parks.

In the next few weeks, Frontier will launch two more routes from BOS to Denver (DEN), and Raleigh/Durham (RDU).

The airline prides itself on such programs as family-friendly benefits and attainable Elite Status. In recent months it reduced its change fees and eliminates them if changes are made at least three months before the booked flight. It also runs a Kids Fly Free program.

Frontier is focused on low fares but also offers passengers ways to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase a la carte services or have them bundled into a cost-effective concept called: the WORKS. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees, and priority boarding.

The airline’s frequent flier program, FRONTIER Miles allowa members to quickly attain Elite status. Customers can earn a mile per mile flown but can also pool miles with family members.

The airline is headquartered in Denver and flies to 100 cities in the U.S. as well as destinations in Canada, Dominican Republic and Mexico.

The daily flight between Boston and Orlando is operated in an A320 aircraft. It departs Boston at 12:10 and arrives in Orlando at 3:22. It departes Orlando at 8:20 am and gets to Boston at 11:20 am.
