SYRACUSE – Frontier Airlines is coming to Hancock International Airport in Syracuse this summer.

Beginning July 2 the airline will have nonstop flights to Denver and Raleigh/Durham, and beginning August 12 there will be nonstop flights to Chicago and Orlando. Airport officials say this project has been in the works since 2010.

“We are proud to call Syracuse our new home,” said Rick Zeni, chief information officer of Frontier Airlines, in a news release. “With our new flights to Chicago O’Hare, Denver, Orlando, and Raleigh, we are making air travel more accessible and affordable for travelers to and from central New York and surrounding areas. We look forward to serving this community with our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right.”

To celebrate the introduction of these flights, Frontier is offering special intro one-way fares as low as $29, but you have to purchase the tickets by 11:59 p.m. Friday, April 6. The special fairs include:

(Beginning July 2)
- Syracuse to/from Denver: $79; fare valid on Mondays
- Syracuse to/from Raleigh/Durham: $29; fare valid on Mondays

(Beginning August 12)
- Syracuse to/from Orlando: $49; fare valid to Florida on Mondays; from Florida on Fridays
- Syracuse to/from Chicago: $39; fare valid on Tuesdays

“Today’s announcement is further proof that if you invest in a community’s infrastructure, good economic news follows," said U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer. "The $48M renovation of Hancock – $9M of which is federal funding I helped land – has breathed new life into the airport, attracting new business and flights to the area. I have made it a priority to expand air service in Central New York because there is no question about it – increased access to air travel is good for businesses, good for jobs, and good for the economic health of a community.”
