On February 8, Frontier Airlines announced it is adding a new nonstop flight from San Antonio International Airport. Beginning in April, the low-cost airline will be offering direct flights from SAT to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. 

The route will run Monday through Friday and originate in RDU at 1:45 pm. The return flight will depart from SAT at 4:59 pm. This marks Frontier's 14th nonstop route servicing SAT, and the airport's 44th total nonstop route.

Frontier also announced that it would be adding 14 more nonstop flights from Austin, making it the second largest carrier at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in terms of the number of cities served. Once the new routes take off, Frontier will offer service to a total of 30 cities from ABIA.

To kick off the new routes, Frontier launched a sale with one-way fares as low as $29. The sale ends February 12, and travel dates stretch from early April through early August, depending on when the new routes start. Frontier will begin rolling out the new SAT to RDU route in April.
