Travelers looking for a low-cost way to get to a major airport hub can now fly out of Fargoâ€™s Hector International Airport through Frontier Airlines.
Frontier Airlines will resume nonstop service between its Denver, Colo. hub and Fargo, with three weekly nonstop flights beginning Nov. 16.
The Denver-based discount airline will operate on spacious 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft, which will reduce the flight time and offer more customer amenities, including 30 channels of DirecTV service available at every seat.
Frontierâ€™s Fargo service will depart Fargo Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10 a.m. and will arrive in Denver at 10:55 a.m.
Flights will depart Denver at 7:10 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will arrive in Fargo at 9:55 p.m.
Frontier Airlines will be the fifth airline offered through Hector International Airport, which has non-stop service to eight cities.
Frontierâ€™s service will be the only full-sized jet service between Fargo and Denver.
The airline last served Fargo in 2010 using a 74-seat regional turboprop aircraft.
Valley City City Commissioner Madeline Luke says when she flies, she tries to find the lowest-cost airline that would get her out of Fargo.
â€śHaving an extra airline always helps bring the prices down because then thereâ€™s competition, Luke said.
â€ś(Denverâ€™s hub) is a gateway to the west coast.â€ť
She said Fargo has a fair number of airlines but because it always costs extra to get to a major city--any new airline is a good airline.
