Frontier Airlines is shifting its Houston operations from Hobby Airport back to Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) on July 11.
The carrier will operate a daily roundtrip between Denver and Houston after the move. A second roundtrip will operate every day except Saturdays.
Frontier CEO David Siegel said that connection opportunities at IAH “will provide our customers with additional travel choices.”
The carrier formerly operated flights at IAH before it switched to Hobby in 2010. When the airline switches back to IAH, it will be the only domestic low-cost carrier at IAH, Frontier said.
Southwest Airlines currently serves Hobby and is considering building an international concourse there so it can schedule flights to Latin America. Before it can do that, it needs federal and city approval to expand its gate space.
Frontier customers scheduled to fly to and from Hobby on July 11 and beyond are being automatically rebooked on IAH flights. Follow Gay Nagle Myers on Twitter @gnmtravelweekly.
