Frontier Airlines is to add three more new routes from May, complementing the more than 50 new markets the US carrier will launch in the second quarter.

Denver-based Frontier says it will begin daily Colorado Springs-Phoenix services on 28 June. A daily Denver-Washington Dulles service will begin on 13 May, and from 15 May the airline will operate thrice weekly between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City.

All of the routes will be flown with Airbus A319s.

"We're excited to serve these markets that are historically overpriced and underserved," says Daniel Shurz, senior vice-president of commercial at Frontier.

Frontier will compete with Southwest Airlines and United Airlines on the Denver-Washington Dulles route and with Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Southwest on the Las Vegas-Salt Lake City route, Flightglobal's Innovata schedules show.

No airline flies between Colorado Springs and Phoenix Sky Harbor. However, Allegiant Air flies the route to nearby Phoenix Mesa airport.
