Seasonal Frontier flights to Miami and Fort Lauderdale will restart Thursday and the New Orleans service will relaunch Nov. 15.

Frontier jumpstarted other major growth for Cincinnati’s airport about 65 miles south of Dayton. When Frontier entered as the only low-cost carrier, other airlines took note and added service to the now regional hub and one of the fastest growing airports in the nation.
