Frontier Airlines announced Monday that it will be returning all Houston flights back to Bush Intercontinental Airport from William P. Hobby Airport begininng July 11.
“We’re confident that Frontier customers will appreciate the convenience and increased flexibility when we move back to Houston’s primary airport,” said David Siegel, president and chief executive officer of Frontier. “In particular, the great connection opportunities that Bush Intercontinental offers will provide our passengers with additional travel choices.”
The Denver-based airline moved its Houston operations to Hobby Airport in November citing convenience to downtown Houston and the airport’s recent $250 million upgrade to its terminal.
The airline will operate its two daily flights to Denver from the larger Bush Intercontinental Airport.
“Frontier Airlines has experienced strong growth of more than 6% in the Houston market since 2008,” said Ian Wadsworth, Houston Airports chief commercial officer. “We welcome Frontier back to George Bush Intercontinental Airport and hope the growth will continue on nonstop service to Denver.”
