Low fares and more direct flights: that’s what Frontier Airlines aims to bring to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
Frontier kicked off its new nonstop service to Tampa, Florida Wednesday afternoon.
Frontier will fly to Tampa four days a week all year round.
Starting Sunday, it will add Fort Myers, Miami and Orlando flights.
Fort Myers and Miami will be offered only during the winter months and those will fly three times a week.
Direct flights to Orlando will be available daily year-round.
Frontier also announced direct flights to Denver will start April 9.
Officials say they thought Buffalo was a perfect match for their airline because they wanted to bring low fares to a place that had airlines that offered similar flights, but at higher costs that they say are statistically overpriced.
Fares start at $49, but perks like checked bags and reserved seating will cost more.
