Ultra-low cost Frontier Airlines launched its nonstop, daily flight to Las Vegas Tuesday from Bradley International Airport paired with introductory one-way fares as low as $89.
With the addition of Las Vegas, Frontier now flies nonstop to six destinations from Connecticut’s largest airport.
Daniel Shurz, a Frontier senior vice president, said the new route “offers consumers an affordable and convenient option for visiting one of the most popular vacation destinations in America.”
JetBlue now offers nonstop service to Las Vegas from Bradley and Breeze plans to add the route in September. But neither airline offers daily service, according to the Connecticut Airport Authority, which oversees operations at Bradley.
Frontier’s flight departs at 5:46 p.m., eastern time and arrives in Las Vegas at 8:22 p.m., pacific time.
To qualify for the introductory fares, tickets must be purchased by 11:59 p.m., eastern time on August 15. All flight reservations are non-refundable with this exception: refunds are given for reservations made 7 days or more before departure and the refund request is made within 24 hours of the initial reservation.
Fares are offered for Monday through Saturday through Nov. 2. Tickets must be purchased seven days in advance, and these blackout dates apply: Aug. 31; Sept. 3, 6 and 7; and Oct. 8, 15, 18 and 19.
There are separate fees in addition to the base fare for baggage, advance seating and other services.
In addition to Las Vegas, the airline currently offers service to Atlanta, Denver, Orlando, Raleigh-Durham and San Juan. Frontier Airlines resumed service at Bradley in 2018.
