“I’m excited about these new low-cost nonstop direct flights between Grand Junction and Denver, and Durango and Denver. These routes will make it easier for Colorado residents to take advantage of Frontier’s low-cost international flight network and help tourists from across the country get to western and southwestern Colorado,” said Gov. Jared Polis in a statement. “The addition of three new Colorado-based routes to Nevada, Alaska, and Montana will also serve as a fantastic opportunity for both Coloradans to get out and explore and for tourists to come and enjoy the beautiful Rocky Mountains.”
