BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Welcomes Frontier Airlines

New Airline for BWI Marshall Adds Service to Denver in March 2019

December 18, 2018 -- Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport today welcomed the
announcement that Frontier Airlines plans to start nonstop service to Denver, Colorado on March
14, 2019.

“We are pleased to welcome Frontier Airlines, which will provide new travel options and
more low fares for our customers,” said Ricky Smith, Executive Director of BWI Marshall
Airport. “This new service is an excellent fit, as Frontier is a low-fare leader in the industry and
BWI Marshall Airport remains the low-cost gateway to Maryland and the entire National Capital
region.”


Frontier will initially offer four weekly roundtrip flights between BWI Marshall Airport
and Denver International Airport. The airline will operate the flights using its Airbus A320
aircraft.


“We are proud to bring our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right to Baltimore, which
will be the 105th city in Frontier’s network,” said Daniel Shurz, Senior Vice President,
Commercial for Frontier Airlines. “Frontier’s new service to Denver will make air travel more
accessible and affordable for everyone in the greater Baltimore-Washington area. We look
forward to making it easier for people to fly, and for people to fly more often.”


BWI Marshall Airport continues to set records for passenger traffic, with new airlines and
service to new markets. Following three-straight record years, passenger traffic has continued to
grow in 2018. Through September 2018, the airport has set new monthly passenger records in
38 of the past 39 months.


Frontier is the second new airline in 2018 to announce entry into the BWI Marshall
Airport market. Icelandair announced in January 2018 that it would begin nonstop service
between BWI Marshall and Reykjavik, Iceland. The Icelandair service began in May 2018.
