Frontier Airlines will begin nonstop service between Denver and Minot on Nov. 5.
"Having Frontier Airlines announce they're coming to Minot is a whole different animal and we're excited about having an affordable airline enter this rapidly growing market," said Andy Solsvig, Minot International Airport director. "More flights connecting to the west will mean more options for travelers."
Frontier will offer nonstop flights using 99-seat Embraer 190 aircraft. Flights will leave Minot at 2:35 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, arriving in Denver at 3:35 p.m. Flights from Denver will leave at 11:25 a.m. and arrive in Minot at 2:05 p.m. All times are local.
"As we've continued to enjoy such a fantastic response to our Bismarck and Fargo service, it's clear there is a considerable need for Frontier's high-value, low-fare service throughout North Dakota," said Daniel Shurz, Frontier's senior vice president, commercial. "We look forward to providing the Minot community and western North Dakota with low-fare, nonstop access to Denver, in addition to convenient connections up and down the west coast."
