“The addition of Frontier to the Dulles family represents a significant, positive development for passengers interested in additional low cost, domestic travel options to and from the National Capital region,” Jack Potter, President and CEO, of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, said in a statement. “Today’s announcement of service to 14 destinations coincides perfectly with the other amazing changes taking place at Dulles — enhanced parking options, spacious concourse makeovers and new food, beverage and retail options coming throughout the year.
“With the Washington area economy growing and the Metrorail Silver Line on the way, Dulles will continue to fill the expanding air travel needs for the region and these new options from Frontier will play an important role. We welcome Frontier aboard.”
