Frontier is the sixth airline at GSP and is the only one offering nonstop service to those cities from the Upstate.

“We are pleased to welcome a new low-cost airline and service to four destinations, including our first nonstop service to Denver,” Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO said in the news release. “This is another great opportunity for people traveling to and from the Upstate, and it’s only possible because of the community’s support.”

Frontier’s nonstop service to Denver, Orlando and Las Vegas will be offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tampa service will be offered on Fridays and Mondays, the news release said. Flights are on 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

In 2018, GSP has announced new nonstop flights to five cities. Airlines operating from GSP have also expanded service to five cities. Frontier’s service brings the number of nonstop destinations available from GSP to 19, the news release said.
