Frontier Airlines announced Thursday that it will add seasonal nonstop service between the Orlando International Airport (MCO) and the San Diego International Airport (SAN) ahead of the holiday season.
Flights will resume between Nov. 5 and Jan. 3, 2023, and operate daily between the destinations, according to the airline. Frontier Airlines last offered flights between the destinations in March and April 2021.
“From one destination to another, we appreciate Frontier Airlines adding a seasonal nonstop flight between our two cities,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President & CEO. “The holiday months during which this service will be offered is a popular time for Southern Californians to travel, and we welcome those visiting from Central Florida.”
According to a SAN spokesperson, the only other airline that offers nonstop flights to Orlando from San Diego is Alaska Airlines.
Orlando is best known as the home of four theme parks – Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, and LEGOLAND Florida Resort.
“Beyond the family fun of theme parks, visitors can take in a plethora of wildlife including birds and the infamous Florida gators, or try a guided canoe or kayak tour through the northernmost headwaters of the Everglades watershed. Orlando boasts more than 5,000 restaurants featuring celebrity chefs and local favorites, craft breweries and wineries, and nightlife options both in and outside of the theme parks,” SAN officials wrote in a statement.
In addition to the seasonal Orlando route, Frontier Airlines offers nonstop service to four other destinations – Dallas, Texas, Denver, Colo., Las Vegas, NV and Phoenix, AZ.
