Flights to start in time for holiday travel
Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT) has announced that Frontier Airlines will begin nonstop service to Orlando International Airport (MCO), starting November 16. The new route will be offered Mondays and Fridays on an Airbus A320, which seats 186-passengers. Tickets may be purchased at www.flyfrontier.com.
The news follows an increase in the airport’s passenger traffic for the year. The summer has been particularly busy as travelers flying out of Clinton National rose 8% in July and 10% for August, according to airlines.
“We thank Frontier Airlines for adding another destination as we work to increase routes,” said Chairwoman Stacy Hurst, Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission. “We’re also appreciative of our passengers who create demand for new air service each time they fly from Little Rock.”
Frontier resumed operating in Little Rock on March 1. High demand has already resulted in the carrier boosting the schedule for its nonstop route to Denver.
