While checking some airfares this morning, I noticed that Frontier Airlines is offering flights from Houston to Denver for $39 each way for many dates until March 7th. A little more investigation revealed that this “New Year’s Sale” is larger than just Denver to Houston!
Some other routes on sale include:
Denver to/from Albuquerque, Austin, Hayden/Steamboat, Little Rock, Houston
Milwaukee to/from New York, Grand Rapids, Flint and Washington
Kansas City to/from Austin, Denver, Milwaukee, Houston
I also noticed that at least Continental Airlines has matched the sale on the Houston to Denver route. Flying Continental from Houston to Denver round-trip for $98.10 all-in is pretty amazing – especially during “ski season”. I say ski season in quotes, because the snow isn’t so fantastic right now. As you can see, availability is pretty good on Continental for that route right now at the discount price of $78 pre-tax.
I didn’t have a chance to check to see if airlines were matching some of the other routes on sale, but if your travel plans include any of these routes through March 7th, now may be a good time to book! Feel free to post here if you find some other airlines matching some of the routes. Fares must be booked by 1/12/2012.
