Today (March 1, 2022), Frontier Airlines announced that they will open a new crew base at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in November 2022, with up to 180 pilots and 275 cabin crew members based at PHX within the first year. Frontier currently operates 14 nonstop routes from Phoenix, offering convenient onward connections across the airline’s extensive domestic and international network. Phoenix Sky Harbor will become Frontier’s eighth pilot base and ninth cabin crew base in the U.S.

In Tuesday’s base announcment, Frontier Airlines’ President and CEO, Barry Biffle, said,

“We are currently the third largest airline at PHX based on number of destinations served and we anticipate continued growth as our fleet and route network further expand. Phoenix is a highly desirable place to live and our crew have been asking for a base at PHX for some time. Whenever we add a new crew base to our network, it creates more flexibility for our team members and greater opportunities for career growth.

“With our ultra-low fare business model that caters to leisure travelers, Phoenix is well poised to benefit from our continued growth at PHX as well as the economic gain derived from additional jobs and residents contributing to the local economy. We are extremely pleased to become an even stronger part of the greater Phoenix community and we thank our partners at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for their continued support and collaboration, which has made today’s announcement possible.”

Also commenting on the new crew base, Phoenix Mayor, Kate Gallego, added,

“Frontier Airlines’ investment in Phoenix will lift the $12.3 billion in economic activity and increase the 57,432 jobs supported by Sky Harbor International Airport. 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.”
