Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines said Wednesday it will add Dallas-Fort Worth as its seventh nonstop destination from Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, in a week marked by a flurry of low-cost airline announcements about new nonstop routes from Connecticut.

Frontier, which resumed service flying out of Bradley in 2019 after an eight year absence, said the new route to Texas will launch May 27 and operate seasonally on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

“Today’s announcement is a reflection of our very strong commitment to provide consumers in the region with even more of Frontier’s ultra-low fares and friendly service,” Daniel Shurz, a Frontier senior vice president, said, in a release.

A check Wednesday of Frontier’s booking site, FlyFrontier.com, showed a round-trip ticket to Dallas-Fort Worth on May 27 was $488, including taxes, fees and a personal carry-on item. There are fees for carry-on and checked bags and other items and services.

Frontier also flies nonstop from Bradley to Atlanta, Cancun, Denver, Miami, Orlando and Raleigh Durham.

Frontier’s announcement came day after the airline launched its first flight from Bradley to Cancun.

One other airline, American, flies nonstop to Dallas-Fort Worth.

On Tuesday, low-cost Breeze Airways said it would add six nonstop destinations in June from Bradley to Nashville, Tenn.; Akron/Canton, Ohio; Savannah, Georgia; Richmond, Virginia, and Jacksonville and Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida. The start-up would then have 10 nonstop destinations from Bradley.

And at Tweed-New Haven Airport, Breeze low-cost rival Avelo Airlines added nonstop flights to Baltimore-Washington D.C., Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, and Chicago.
