Frontier has gone big, and by big we mean one of the single largest route announcements in American aviation history.

The Denver-based low-cost carrier announced Tuesday morning the opening of 21 new cities and 85 new route pairings, almost doubling the airline’s daily flights as part of the largest single route announcement in the airline’s history.

In a press release, Frontier Airlines said the expansion will increase the number of destinations served by 30% and double the total number of route combinations. They also added, “By next Spring, Frontier will offer low fares to 90% of the U.S. population, which is expected to bring more than US $1 billion in savings to consumers through lower airfares.”

Frontier currently operates a fleet of 18 Airbus A319, 25 Airbus A320, 9 Airbus A320neo, and 17 Airbus A321 aircraft. In addition, they have 18 Airbus A319neo and 53 Airbus A320neo aircraft on order. (Photo: nycplanespotting.com)

Despite all of these network adds, Frontier is not actually “gaining” many routes. In the last few months, the airline has steadily trimmed their destinations and routes to a point where there is enough free aircraft to make a large expansion like this possible. In fact, over 40 routes were ended, all of which you can see at the map below:
