Frontier Airlines will begin service in San Antonio this year. The announcement was made Tuesday.
Frontier will provide direct flights from San Antonio to Philadelphia, a route not currently offered. It will also add more direct flights to Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Denver, where the company is based.
Last year City Council approved a program to provide financial incentives for airlines to begin serving San Antonio. City Councilman Joe Krier says this announcement shows the program is working, and is an important development for tourists and businesses alike.
