Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines has announced two new nonstop routes from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, plus the resumption of flights to Las Vegas beginning in March 2021. To celebrate this new and returning service, Frontier is offering fares as low as $39*, which are available now at www.FlyFrontier.com.

“We’re thrilled to continue our exceptional growth at Miami’s convenient airport with new nonstop flights to Punta Cana and St. Thomas starting right in time for spring break travel,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial Frontier Airlines. “These new flights will offer unparalleled affordability and access between Miami and two beautiful destinations in the Caribbean. Additionally, the flights will maintain Frontier’s high health standards, including required mask-wearing, temperature screenings and enhanced onboard cleaning.”

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.

The health and safety of customers and team members is Frontier’s number one priority. With that in mind, Frontier introduced sweeping health and safety enhancements in 2020 that touch every step of a customer’s travel journey with the airline.

Frontier requires all customers and crew members wear a face-covering throughout their travel journey. Plus, anyone flying with Frontier must complete a health acknowledgment prior to flying confirming that:

Neither they nor anyone in their household has exhibited Covid-19 related symptoms in the last 14 days

They will wash their hands/sanitize before boarding the flight

They understand and acknowledge the airline’s face covering policy and pre-boarding temperature screening policies

During flight, main cabin air is a mix of fresh air drawn from outside and air that has been passed through an air filtration system that features HEPA filters capable of capturing respiratory virus particles at more than 99.9 percent efficiency – similar to those used in hospital environments. Frontier’s modern all-Airbus fleet is among the youngest in the world — all aircraft currently in operation are less than four years old.
