Frontier Airlines
will offer non-stop flights to Las Vegas from Colorado Springs in April, the Colorado Springs Airport announced in a news release this morning.

The announcement came at a news conference at the airport conducted by Mayor John Suthers.

The addition is part of an expansion of Frontier into 56 new markets across the country. Frontier ended all service to Colorado Springs in April 2013, according to the Gazette.

Here's the release:
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Frontier Airlines will launch new service in Colorado Springs with non-stops to Las Vegas that begin this April. Frontier is offering special introductory fares as low as $19 one-way on these new routes as of today at Flyfrontier.com. With The WORKS, fares are as low as $118.

Customers can take advantage of Frontier’s bundled choice, The WORKSsm, containing Frontier’s most popular options for one low price. The WORKS is available at FlyFrontier.com at time of initial booking and includes one carry-on bag, one checked bag, best available seat including Stretch and Exit Row options, full refundability when canceled at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure, no change fees and priority boarding.

“We have 18 new planes delivering this year, growing the fleet by nine additional units after retirements,” said Frontier Airlines President Barry Biffle. “We’re excited to bring Low Fares Done Right not only to the Colorado Springs area but to people in areas like Pueblo, Canon City and Castle Rock. Our low fares enable people to travel who were forced into their car or stay at home. We look forward to welcoming these new flyers soon.”

“On behalf of the City of Colorado Springs, I am honored to be the first to say Welcome Back to our great city. We are extremely proud to partner with Frontier Airlines and we are committed to the success of your business and to meeting the needs of all our air service customers,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers.
