TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Colorado-based Frontier Airlines announced this week they are ramping up new non-stop air service to Washington Dulles International Airport with flights from 14 destinations, including several in Florida.

In Florida, Frontier Airlines will offer non stop flights to Washington, D.C. from Orlando and Tampa, starting in August. By September, service will be offered from Fort Myers, and St. Augustine/Jacksonville.

All flights will be on 168-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

Frontier is the latest to add direct flights to the nation's capital. Tallahassee Regional Airport's director Chris Curry says they are actively working with airlines to reestablish direct flights from Tallahassee to Washington, D.C. That link was once offered by U.S. Airways until they were purchased by American Airlines and the decision was made by the airline to discontinue the non stop service.
