Frontier Airlines Abandons a Houston Airport

On Wednesday, if you're driving to Hobby, rushing to make your Frontier Airlines flight, you are in a world of hurt.

That's because you'll be headed to the wrong airport. Effective July 11 and moving forward (at least until it changes its mind again) Frontier and its planes will be going in and out of gates at George Bush Intercontinental, ditching the Hobby Airport to the south.

Frontier says going back to Bush makes it the only low-cost airplane flying out of there and comes complete with a lot of better networking.

"Bush Intercontinental offers great connection opportunities that will provide our passengers with additional travel choices," said Daniel Shurz, Frontier's senior vice president, commercial. "In fact, it offers the most flights of any Houston-area airport - including nonstop service to Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America on Frontier's interline partners."

Frontier has notified and rebooked passengers with reservations so everyone in that category should be a-ok but if you're thinking of heading out on a sudden whim, better check your bearings.
