Frontier Airlines Returns to Boise Airport

Frontier Airlines, which last flew out of Boise in fall 2011, has announced plans to begin service next spring between Boise and Denver. “It’s absolutely great news,” said Sean Briggs, spokesman for the Boise Airport. Airport officials spoke with Frontier executives a couple of years ago and were told the airline was interested in returning to Boise. “They mentioned they were looking at Boise, but it sounded like it was more of a three- to five-year plan, so we were pretty excited to see it happen as quick as it did,” Briggs said.

Frontier spokesman Richard Oliver said the company is pleased to be coming back to Boise. “It’s a destination people have been asking for and a place people have been asking for low-fare service,” Oliver said. The Denver-based carrier expects to begin service between the two cities around May 10, Oliver said. Frontier plans to use Airbus A319s or A320s, which carry 160 to 180 passengers.
