Frontier Airlines has informed Lafayette Regional Airport (LFT) they will not return to the Lafayette market.
Frontier stated in an email to LFT Executive Director Steven Picou that the demand for their service was insufficient. Frontier flew over 40,000 passengers in 2019, providing direct service to Orlando, Florida and Denver, Colorado.
“We appreciate the service Frontier provided,” says Picou. “While it is disappointing to hear of this decision, it is not uncommon in the airline industry. It is a very dynamic model, and airlines do what makes the best business sense for them. We will continue to explore new opportunities with other airlines and seek more direct destinations on existing airlines.”
