City and Frontier Airlines officials Tuesday announced expanded service from Colorado Springs Airport.

Five cities will be added this summer, and more in the the fall.

From the release:
Starting later this spring and summer, Frontier Airlines will launch seasonal service to five cities from Colorado Springs. The new cities include Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington. Later this fall, Frontier will add new seasonal service to both Fort Myers and Tampa, Fla. Frontier is offering special introductory fares as low as $29* on these new routes as of today at Flyfrontier.com.

“It’s been just over a year since we announced we were returning to Colorado Springs with our non-stops to Las Vegas,” said Barry Biffle, Frontier’s president and CEO. “Thanks to the terrific support of the entire Colorado Springs community as well as the surrounding area after we added Orlando and Phoenix service, we’re able to announce seven new seasonal cities at the same time today.”

“We continue to be extremely pleased with the growth at the Colorado Springs Airport and the commitment displayed to our city by Frontier Airlines. As our air service expands, we want to be sure to encourage all Southern Colorado residents to ‘look before you book – and fly COS whenever possible.’ It's up to us to support the investment of Frontier and other carriers in our community,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers.

"Colorado Springs continues to garner national attention for its innovative, collaborative business environment. We know that cost-efficient, reliable transportation options are critical to our city’s success. The expansion of Frontier flights to and from Colorado Springs will help boost our economy as well as further solidify our position among the top business communities in the nation. Thank you to the Colorado Springs Airport and Frontier Airlines for your partnership, your foresight, and your valuable investment in our business community,” said Dirk Draper, president and CEO of the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce & EDC
