Frontier Airlines will fly direct from Denver to Belize starting in December

Frontier Airlines has announced the latest expansion of its route network including a nonstop flight connecting its home base of Denver to Belize City, Belize.

The budget carrier will add 20 new flights to its network before the end of the year, according to this week’s announcement, 19 of which will fly out of airports in Florida.

The new routes include nonstop service between Miami International Airport and New Windsor, N.Y., as well as Tampa and New Windsor.

At Orlando International Airport, Frontier is adding 17 routes including flights to Cozumel, Mexico; Liberia; Costa Rica; Montego Bay, Jamaica, and other destinations in the Caribbean region. Those flights will debut between Oct. 25 and Dec. 17.

The most impactful new addition for flyers in Frontier’s home state will be the once-weekly service between Denver International Airport and Belize City on the Yucatan Peninsula. Fares will start at $99 when the flight debuts on Dec. 11, the airline announced.

“Today’s announcement marks one of our largest international expansions ever and we are thrilled to now offer our customers affordable service to four more popular destinations offering both sun and fun,” Frontier executive Daniel Shurz said in a statement released Tuesday.

Frontier went public in April. The $570 million initial public offering injected $266 million into the low-cost carrier, money the company is using to fuel rapid growth as the airline industry seeks to recover from a disastrous 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Frontier and its DIA neighbors Southwest Airlines and United Airlines are all betting big on leisure travel.

Just last week, Frontier announced 21 forthcoming new flights. That round will be leaving from airports in Atlanta, Dallas-Forth Worth and Las Vegas as they become active over the next nine months.
