Frontier Airlines to open a crew base at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport

Nov 21, 2023

Ultra-low fare carrier Frontier Airlines today announced it will open a new crew base at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) in May of 2024. The base is expected to employ approximately 80 pilots and 160 flight attendants within its first year of operation. Combined with airport and maintenance positions, the airline is expected to generate nearly $27 million annually in local wages with further growth anticipated in the coming years. Frontier currently offers 12 nonstop routes from CVG. To celebrate, America’s Greenest Airline is offering fares from $39.*

“The opening of a crew base will bring new jobs and meaningful wage impact to the greater Cincinnati area creating positive benefit for the airport and local community,” said Barry Biffle, CEO, Frontier Airlines. “Opening a crew base is also a win for customers who are able to take advantage of our ultra-low fares as we continue to grow at CVG and add new service over time.”

“We were very grateful when Frontier entered our market 10 years ago as our first low-cost carrier, said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “Since the airline began service at CVG, they’ve experienced tremendous growth serving more than 7.8 million travelers. We welcome Frontier’s investment to open a crew base at CVG and we are appreciative of this vote of confidence in our region. This will positively impact both their frequency of service and our local economy through added jobs.”
