Frontier Airlines starts service to San Juan in June

PHILIPSBURG — Low cost carrier Frontier Airlines will begin nonstop services from Princess Juliana International Airport to Luis Muňoz International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on June 3.

Frontier is already flying from St. Maarten to Orlando once a week.

“We’re thrilled to offer this convenient, affordable new intra-island service between St. Maarten and San Juan. This is part of our new focus on underserved and overpriced routes,” said Frontier’s Vice president of network and operations design Josh Flyr in a press statement. “This new service will provide a low-cost option for local residents seeking to travel between the two islands and for those who want to use San Juan as a connection point for travel to and from the United States and other destination.”

The service from St. Maarten to San Juan is still subject to government approval in Puerto Rico.

To boost interest in the new service, Frontier is offering clients what it calls ‘a special limited Frontier Miles promotion’ that gives travelers the option to earn five times the miles and points for all flight bookings made through January 30.

“This means that customers will earn an extra 5x miles on all qualifying purchases and get that much closer to earning free flights, free bags and free seat assignments,” the press release states.

Frontier could do with a boost to its image because the Wall Street Journal ranked the company as America’s second worst airline in 2023, based on involuntarily bumping, extreme delays, tarmac delays and mishandled bags. Bumping happens when passengers are denied boarding because there are more passengers than available seats.
