Frontier Airlines, the ultra low-cost carrier headquartered in Denver, Colorado, is suspending service to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport effective April 19, an airport official said.
Tom Tyra, director of communications at GSP Airport, said the announcement came “in response to the dramatic drop in passenger demand arising from COVID-19.”
Frontier began service to GSP Airport in September 2018 and offered service to Denver and Orlando on a less than daily basis, according to Tyra.
“We are disappointed that service has been interrupted, but given the difficult environment in which airlines are operating in today, the decision is understandable,” Tyra said in an email.
Passengers with tickets after April 19 will be contacted by Frontier for re-accommodation.
GSP will continue to offer nonstop service to both markets served by Frontier, Tyra said. United Airlines will offer daily nonstop flights to Denver, while Allegiant will provide nonstop service to Orlando/Sanford.
Tyra said he doesn’t expect Frontier to resume service until passenger demand returns to pre-COVID-19 levels.
