Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority and Frontier Airlines officials announced today new nonstop service connecting the airline from BNA to Chicago, Orlando and Philadelphia, effective in mid-April.

Frontier's flights will be offered Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

In a release from Frontier, the airline announced service to Chicago will begin on April 14, and service to Philadelphia will begin on April 15.

Introductory fares to Los Angeles and San Francisco start at $79 each way, Houston (IAH) at $59 each way and Philadelphia at $39 each way.

Frontier also said it will bring back seasonal nonstop service to Atlanta (ATL), Phoenix (PHX) and Dallas (DFW).

The low-fare airline will start selling tickets for the flights on Thursday, the city's aviation department said.

Privately held Frontier has been shifting to an ultra-low-cost carrier model that offers low base fares but adds fees for many services.

BNA now services Orlando via Delta Air Lines and Southwest; Chicago O'Hare via American Airlines and United Airlines; and Philadelphia via American Airlines and Southwest. "We see hundreds of additional opportunities like these throughout the country, fueling our growth for years to come".

The routes are among the most popular destinations from Kansas City, an airport official said. "Thanks to the support of the entire Tri-State community, Frontier has experienced tremendous success at CVG".
