Frontier Airlines will begin flying out of Memphis International in May. Service will include 2 daily nonstop flights to Denver, with 2 additional flights to be announced at a later date.

Although known for thier discount fares, the planes will be 114-seat Airbus 318s, which include seat-back televisions and pay-per-view channels.

Frontier is the second-largest jet service carrier at Denver International Airport. Its other service in Tennessee is to Nashville, where it offers three flights a day.

Here’s hoping one of the additional routes will be to Dallas. If so, I may overcome my intense distaste of dealing with airport security and being shipped like cattle for the opportunity to see my grandchildren more often.
