To celebrate the launch of the new route, Frontier is offering introductory fares starting at $69 one way.

Keep in mind that the airline “unbundles” fares. It offers cheap base rates and charges extra for things like seat assignments and baggage, including carry-on luggage. Make sure to figure those costs into your budget before booking. 

To grab the sale fare, you must book by Jan. 21 at flyfrontier.com. You’ll find the best fares if you depart on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
