Ultra-low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines plans to open a new crew base at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in November 2022. Up to 180 pilots and 275 flight attendants are expected to be based at PHX within the first year with additional growth anticipated in the future.
“Frontier Airlines’ investment in Phoenix will lift the US$12.3 billion in economic activity and increase the 57,432 jobs supported by Sky Harbor International Airport,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “We look forward to welcoming the new crew base members and sharing the vibrant quality of life these new residents will enjoy in this community. This is a great advancement in Frontier’s continued growth and success in Phoenix.”
Frontier currently operates 14 nonstop routes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport with a variety of additional flight connection opportunities available within the company’s domestic and international network. Frontier Airlines operates a fleet of more than 110 highly-efficient Airbus A320-family aircraft. The airline has 230 new Airbus planes on order between now and 2029, which will triple the size of its fleet.
