New Route of the Day – Americas (23 February 2023): Frontier between St. Louis and Montego Bay
Frontier on 23 February introduced a new service between St. Louis and Montego Bay in Jamaica. The 3-weekly flights operate each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday with the A320neo aircraft. Frontier competes directly against Southwest’s 2-weekly service on the 2,550-kilometre route.
What they said
Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, Director of St. Louis Airport, said: “It is exciting that Frontier begins seasonal nonstop service to Montego Bay. Montego Bay is one of our passengers’ favourite destinations.”
Donovan White, Director of Tourism at the Jamaica Tourist Board, noted: “These new flight additions by Frontier are welcomed strategic developments that provide more options for travellers to get to Jamaica. This provides even greater connectivity to and from the west and northwest regions of the United States.”
