Fresno, CA (July 18, 2017) – Frontier Airlines today announced major air service expansion plans to 21 cities including Fresno, California. The airline, committed to offering low fares done right, will begin non-stop air service between Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) and Denver International Airport (DEN) in spring 2018.
