Frontier offering non-stop flights to Cleveland beginning in June

Staff writerFebruary 19, 2014 

Filling a gap in Sea-Tac's repertoire of flights left by United Airlines' plan to close its hub at Cleveland, Denver's Frontier Airlines has announced it will begin non-stop service to the Northeast Ohio city in June.

That service will fly Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday beginning June 15.  Introductory fares available on Frontier's web site through Saturday are as low as $119 each way.

United recently announced that it would shut down its Cleveland hub, an operation it says is losing millions of dollars a year.  United inherited Cleveland as a hub airport from Continental Airlines with which it merged four years ago.

Frontier is also flying non-stop from Cleveland to Trenton, N.J., and to Orlando in an attempt to pick up some of United's traffic volume.

While the Orlando flight will operate all year, the Sea-Tac-Cleveland flight will operate only seasonally.
