"The introduction of a competitive air service alternative for people flying between the Twin Cities and Kansas City is great for consumers, providing more scheduling options and keeping fares in check," said Jeff Hamiel, executive director of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which owns and operates Minneapolis-St. Paul International (MSP) and six general aviation airports. "I am very pleased to see Frontier Airlines expand operations at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport."
Frontier Airlines will offer two flights a day Monday through Saturday and one flight on Sundays from MSP to Kansas City International with departures at 9:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., depending on day of the week. Return flights arrive at 8:45 a.m. and 3:55 p.m., depending on day of the week.
“Our new service between Minneapolis and Kansas City highlights Frontier’s commitment to providing our guests affordable and convenient travel to more destinations,” said Daniel Shurz, vice president of strategy and planning. “With our better and different service, we’re looking forward to providing travelers a choice in how they travel.”
Frontier Airlines recently introduced new, lower fares on flights to and from Kansas City. Schedules, connections and fares are available at FrontierAirlines.com.
The new Minneapolis-Kansas City route will be served by Embraer 190 aircraft, which seat 99 passengers, and Embraer 170 aircraft, which seat 76. The aircraft feature four rows of STRETCH seating, which offer five additional inches of legroom.
Delta is the only other airline offering non-stop service between MSP and Kansas City.
