Sacramento airport marketing head Mark Haneke credited the strength of Sacramento's regional economy and the expansion of Vancouver as an global hub for bringing the airline back to Sacramento.

The new Frontier flights will bring the total nonstop destinations from San Antonio's airport to 53, including direct flights to five cities in Mexico and to Toronto in Canada.

To celebrate the new service, the airline is offering an introductory fare starting at $59 one way. The sale runs through 11:59 p.m. Friday, for travel through November 14 on Mondays only.

The flights will depart Omaha's Eppley Airfield at 10 a.m. on those days and be on Airbus A319 aircraft seating 150 passengers.

The flight will leave San Antonio at 7 a.m. and land at 9:15 a.m.


The airline launched five new flights last fall, and five others last month. The service will begin October 4.

The announcement is the largest air service announcement in the San Antonio International Airport's history.

At its peak previous year, Frontier offered as many as 19 destinations from Cleveland, including service to Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. Those routes, and several others, were eliminated a year ago after other airlines - chiefly United - cut fares to compete.

The low-priced carrier announced the addition of six new destinations from JAX last week.

The low-priced airline now originates direct flights from Cleveland Hopkins to Austin, Tex.; Cancun, Mexico; Denver; Fort Myers, Fla.; Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Orlando, Fla.; Portland, Ore.; Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, N.C; and Seattle.
