Frontier Airlines has begun nonstop, year-round service to San Diego from Indianapolis International Airport. Indianapolis Airport Authority Executive Director Mario Rodriguez says the flight brings service to a key destination "that was unserved for years, and has remained underserved until now."
The airline announced the new year-round flight in June. It runs twice weekly on Monday and Fridays, and brings the airline’s nonstop destination count out of Indianapolis to eight. Frontier also has nonstop flights from Indy to Austin, Denver, Las Vegas, Orlando, Philadelphia, Fort Myers and Tampa.
The airport says San Diego is a key destination, since it is a popular leisure destination and a technology and life sciences hub. Southwest Airlines last summer launched seasonal nonstop service to San Diego and to Oakland last month.
Rodriguez says the flight adds to a growing number of nonstop routes to the West Coast. In addition to San Diego and Oakland, the airport offers nonstop flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
