“At AUA Airport, we are seriously dedicated to Air Service Development! The team’s efforts which have started before the pandemic, are now crystalizing with the addition of a new carrier to the diverse portfolio of carriers that believe in Aruba and our international airport. This first step in our relationship with the popular U.S. low-cost carrier will provide additional traveling options for both local and U.S. travelers, as per Frontier Airlines’ motto, “The sky is for everyone.” Frontier Airlines delivers this vision through its unique brand of low-fare options. As a growing and environmentally conscious airline, the airline perfectly fits AUA Airport’s vision for the future. Expansion plans and becoming the most sustainable airport in the region are applicable for both AUA Airport and Frontier Airlines,” expressed Mrs. Jo-Anne Meaux-Arends, Air Service Development Manager at AAA.

Frontier’s effort to reduce their carbon footprint to ensure a cleaner earth is in line with Aruba’s approach to bring awareness and education to the public.” said Mrs. Ronella Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority.
