Frontier Airlines Launches New International Service from Las Vegas to Cancun and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Frontier Airlines B-Roll RAW

LAS VEGAS - Frontier Airlines continues to expand its signature low-fare service at McCarran International Airport (LAS) with two Mexican beach resort destinations -  Cancun (CUN) and Cabos San Lucas (SJD). Frontier will offer the only nonstop flight option on both routes, and will become be the only U.S. carrier offering international service from McCarran. Most importantly, it means the airline will now serve 31 cities non-stop from LAS. Special fares as low as $79 are available at flyfrontier.com.

“We are excited to continue our mission to make flying affordable for Las Vegas with two new international options,” said Josh Flyr, vice president of network and revenue for Frontier Airlines. “We appreciate the continued support of the airport and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and are proud to offer the only international service by a U.S. carrier here. We now serve the Las Vegas community with 31 non-stop options which support both the growth of the tourism industry and offers more choices for locals to enjoy.”

"We welcome Frontier’s newest nonstop flights and believe its low fares will appeal to both Las Vegas locals looking to vacation abroad and Mexican visitors interested in all we have to offer here in the Entertainment Capital of the World," said Chris Jones, Chief Marketing Officer for Clark County Department of Aviation. "In response to continued interest from around the world, McCarran International Airport recently increased its capacity to handle international arrivals by renovating gates in the D Concourse. Frontier will be the first U.S. carrier to utilize these gates for regularly scheduled international service."

“We are delighted that our partners at Frontier Airlines continue to expand service to Las Vegas, adding seasonal service from Cancun and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,” said Cathy Tull, chief marketing officer for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “With the announcement of these routes, Frontier will add direct service to Las Vegas from 10 new markets in 2018, with a combined economic impact of nearly $268 million. It is particularly exciting to see Frontier’s commitment to underserved markets such as Cancun and Cabo San Lucas, as every new seat provides an opportunity for continuous growth in the destination.”

Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize their travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees and priority boarding. The Works is only available at flyfrontier.com.

Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry, the Airbus A320 Family of nearly 80 jet aircraft. With nearly 200 new planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company will continue to keep fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.
