Frontier Adds New Nonstop Flights from Raleigh to Atlanta and Miami
By adding these two new cities, Frontier Airlines increases its number of destinations from Raleigh to 22. The new routes begin November 14, 2019, and both will have daily service, which is rare for Frontier Airlines. Direct competition between Atlanta and Raleigh is offered on Delta and Southwest, and American provides direct competition on the Miami route. Delta, Southwest, Spirit, and JetBlue provide competition with nonstop service to nearby Ft. Lauderdale (FLL).
All of these routes will likely see even lower prices thanks to the added competition. Sign up for free fare alerts to find out when prices drop.
Intro fares are available for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from November 19, 2019 - February 12, 2020.
There are blackout dates listed from November 22 - Dec. 2; Dec. 20, 2019 - January 6, 2020, and January 17 - 20, 2020.
Intro fares are advertised to expire at 11:59 pm ET, August 7, 2019.
New Nonstop Service on Frontier Airlines to/from Raliegh
These fares only include one small personal item. Checked bag fees start at $30 each way when purchased during the initial booking. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $35 each way.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Discount Den member fares are slightly less. Membership costs $59.99/year and comes with a few other perks. Frontier also offers the Works bundle, which can be added to any flight during the initial booking. It includes a standard carry-on bag plus a personal item, one free checked bag, seat selection (including stretch seating), priority boarding, flight flexibility, and refundability. This is a value if you want all of these amenities, but chances are you can get away with just adding what you need a la carte for cheaper.
Searching Frontier's site, I found flights for an overnight trip, departing Raleigh RDU on Tuesday, November 19, returning from Atlanta ATL on Wednesday, November 20, for $57 roundtrip. Same-day and week-long trips are also available for this price. And if you're near the airport today, you can save $20 per ticket (carrier interface charge) by booking at an airport counter.
