Frontier Airlines will add service to seven U.S. cities from Ontario International Airport beginning in early 2021, the airport announced Tuesday, Nov. 17.

The low-cost carrier will begin new flights to Phoenix, Sacramento, San Francisco and Chicago (via O’Hare International Airport) between February and May. At first the airline will start with two flights per week, increasing to four per week to Phoenix by March and four per week to Sacramento and San Francisco starting in May.

Also, the airline is bringing back flights suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic to Las Vegas, Orlando and Miami between February and April. It is scheduling four flights to Vegas and Orlando starting Feb. 11 and four flights to Miami beginning April 15.

“Frontier is a longtime Ontario partner – the first to announce new service after ONT’s transfer to local control in 2016. They recognize the value of our low-cost, international gateway,” Mark Thorpe, CEO of Ontario International Airport Authority, said in a prepared statement. “Like other carriers, Frontier felt the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but is now betting that a rebuild of its Ontario flight schedule will help quicken its return to profitability. And that’s a good bet.”

Frontier will require all passengers to wear masks and submit to temperature screenings.

The new Frontier flights adds to Delta Airlines’ twice daily nonstop flights out of ONT to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport added in October.
