Frontier Airlines will become the sixth airline to offer flights from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport when it begins service on Sept. 8.
Frontier will offer nonstop flights to Denver, Las Vegas, Orlando, and seasonal service to Tampa, the airline announced Tuesday.
“This is great news for GSP’s passengers,” said Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO. “Each of these new cities is in the top 20 destinations for GSP’s passengers, and Frontier will make reaching these destinations more convenient. We are excited to offer these services to people living in the Upstate and surrounding areas.”
There will be flights to each of those cities from GSP twice a week, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
“We are proud to bring our unique brand of ‘Low Fares done Right’ to Greenville,” said Tyri Squyres, Frontier’s vice president of marketing. Squyres said Frontier’s new flights would make air travel more accessible and more affordable for Greenville-Spartanburg area residents.
Flights to Denver will depart at 12:20 p.m. Flights to Orlando will depart at 3:40 p.m., while flights to Las Vegas will leave GSP at 8:40 p.m. Flights to Tampa will begin in the winter and can be booked in July when Frontier’s winter schedule is released.
Frontier is offering a special introductory one-way fare of $34, which is available now on flyfrontier.com. The special fares must be purchased by 11:509 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 20, for nonstop travel. Travel is valid Sept. 10 through Nov. 14.

Frontier serves more than 90 cities in the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic and Mexico.
Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, and United already offer flights at GSP.
With the Frontier announcement, GSP will have 19 nonstop destinations.
In April, Delta announced it would add two new nonstop daily flights to New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) beginning July 9. Delta currently offers one daily nonstop flight to LGA.
