Frontier CEO Barry Biffle said that after completing JetBlue’s purchase of Spirit, his company “isn’t licking its wounds.” Conversely, Biffle announced that Frontier’s international operations would grow between 5% and 20% over the next 3-5 years.
Regarding the destinations it will fly to, Frontier focuses its international growth on the Caribbean.
“We are going to grow much more internationally. We have invested heavily in Jamaica, Cancun and throughout the Caribbean. Recently, we announced Denver – Montego Bay, for example,” Biffle said.
In Frontier’s commitment to the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic plays a stellar role since it is its second market with the highest number of flights in the region, surpassing Mexico.
