(WMC-TV) - Frontier Airlines will soon be taking off from Memphis International Airport. Nonstop service to Denver will begin out of MEM on March 7.

Frontier Airlines is hubbed in Denver. The company announced it will provide four flights to Denver each week, leaving on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. From there, passengers can connect to dozens of cities such as San Francisco, Seattle, Fresno, and more.

"I'm excited there is a new airline available," said Beth Endy, who lives in Memphis. "I'll certainly be checking out their flight availability."

Currently, Frontier Airlines operates more than 350 daily flights across the nation, offering service to more than 80 destinations in the United States, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Mexico.

"Today's exciting announcement from Frontier Airlines is the beginning of a new era of affordable airfare choices for our passengers," said Jack Sammons, Chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority Board of Commissioners. "I am confident Frontier's direct service to Denver will be warmly embraced by passengers in our region."

For passengers booking flights to Denver now through October 12, airfare is as low as $69 one way.
