The new route launched with a unique celebration at the gate area of CVG Airport. Representatives from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region took the inaugural flight to hand deliver a taste of Ohio Beer and Kentucky Bourbon to New Orleans Bourbon Street. Passengers aboard the inaugural flight were served bourbon balls and participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. New Orleans officials greeted inbound travelers and delivered a gift back to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky.

“Frontier’s new service from Cincinnati to New Orleans is an exciting addition to our robust service at CVG,” said Jonathon Nield, sr. manager of network planning for Frontier Airlines. “Frontier will now offer 21 non-stop options for CVG travelers, the most of any ultra-low-cost carrier at the airport. It’s our mission to provide Low Fares Done Right and with unique offers like Friends Fly Free and Kids Fly Free for our Discount Den members, we’re making it possible for more people to fly more often.”

“We’re thrilled to connect our two cities by bringing a taste of Ohio Beer and Kentucky Bourbon to New Orleans Bourbon Street,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG Airport. “We’re grateful Frontier is adding more low-cost options for local travelers to fly nonstop to Bourbon Street and for visitors to fly to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region to see what Bourbon Country has to offer.”

Frontier operates over 95 A320 family aircraft and has the largest A320neo fleet in the U.S., delivering the highest level of noise reduction and fuel-efficiency, compared to previous models. The use of these aircraft, Frontier’s seating configuration, weight-saving tactics and baggage process have all contributed to the airline’s average of 39% fuel savings compared to other U.S. airlines (fuel savings is based on Frontier Airlines 2018 fuel consumption per seat-mile compared to the weighted average of major U.S. airlines). More information about Frontier’s green commitments are available at

Frontier is committed to families. One of the most popular family offers is Kids Fly Free whereby one kid can fly free for every adult with Discount Den travel club membership on select dates and flights. Additional information about Kids Fly Free is available at In addition to Kids Fly Free, Frontier offers special rewards and status benefits for the whole family. Plus, every Frontier aircraft features a unique animal on its tail -- from Griz the Bear to Otto the Owl, to Flo the Flamingo -- kids will enjoy getting to know their new animal friends.

Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle 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 lets members enjoy many benefits as well as the ability to attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly, and the program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. Whether customers travel a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.

With over 150 new Airbus planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company keeps fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.
