Frontier Airlines has made its intentions clear with the latest modification to its airplane order. Frontier Airlines has converted 18 of its Airbus A320NEO family jets on order to 18 Airbus A321XLR aircraft. The airline stated that the move would allow Frontier to pursue new destinations the likes of Hawaii as well as international destinations.
Frontier has stated that the Airbus A321XLR aircraft are the most fuel-efficient, longest-range, single-aisle planes in the industry and that is what will allow Frontier to keep its pricing competitive for its passengers. Frontier also boasts that in addition to having the most fuel-efficient fleet in the US, it also has the youngest. Having these newer planes is a huge attraction for passengers.
The new A321XLR planes will allow Frontier to explore new destinations such as Hawaii and possibly several places in Europe. The carrier has revealed it has experienced significant growth throughout the country and that Hawaii and international flights seem like the right step to take for continued growth. The airline has not announced, however, any details on where exactly it would like to fly or when.
If Frontier indeed starts offering flights to Hawaii, this will be good news. Good deals on flights to the Hawaiian islands from mainland US will always be welcomed. At the moment, Frontier doesn't fly to many international destinations. It flies to Calgary, Canada; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. In Mexico, Frontier serves Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Cancun.
