Both Denver and Houston are rapidly growing cities. The recent massive migrations of workers around the US were a result of many companies moving to new cities. Denver and Houston have been the recipients of many of these companies. With more people moving in rather than out, these cities have only grown in population and show no signs of slowing down.
The increase in professional jobs brings a demand for business travel to these locations. The higher population number has also brought an increase in demand for leisure travel. The combination of these two, along with travel needed for other reasons, has brought to light this demand for low-cost travel between the two growing population centers.

The promotional offer for a one-way ticket on this route is limited. However, Frontier has on multiple occasions re-pledged its determination to provide affordable fares on all of its routes. The airline is promoting its ‘Low Fares Done Right’ campaign as part of this flight.
This program implemented by the airline is designed to help passengers save the most money on their flights by customizing fares based on the specific needs of each passenger. Passengers may opt to travel with minimal luggage and pay an additional fee for all luggage that cannot be stowed under the seat in front of them, or they may purchase a fare package referred to as the WORKS. This allows customers to take a carry-on bag, a checked bag, seat selection, waived change fees, and priority boarding.
Frontier Airlines will be launching a new route from Denver to Houston starting this September. The route comes in response to an ever-growing demand for air travel between the two cities. The airline hopes to secure ticket sales by offering a limited-time fare of only $69.
