UPDATE 3/7/14 9:00 a.m.

Frontier Airlines kicks off regular service at Memphis International Airport today.

The low cost carrier's first flight lands at Memphis International Airport at 1:40 this afternoon.

Frontier will start with four scheduled flights a week between Denver and Memphis but executives have already announced they will increase that to daily service starting in June.

Frontier has been in Memphis before, but left five years ago during its financial troubles.

Great news for frequent flyers, American Airlines announced yesterday it is adding three daily nonstop flights between Memphis and Philly.

The flights to Philadelphia International Airport will begin June 5th.

You can book one of those flights starting Saturday. 

American Airlines and US Airways will run the flights together because they are merging.

This Friday, March 7, Frontier Airlines will start nonstop service from Memphis International Airport to Denver International Airport.

The Denver-based low cost airline announced in October 2013 its return to Memphis with four weekly nonstop service to the Mile High city.

"We'll be flying four flights a week with 138-seaters," Gregory Aretakis of Frontier Airlines said back in October 2013. "The service will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays."

If the demand for flights out of Memphis is there, Aretakis claims Frontier Airlines will stay in Memphis and could potentially expand its service.

"As our markets develop, we'll do better and better in terms of service we add," he said. "But there are no promises."

The Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority said Frontier Airlines will fly out of Gate C7 at Memphis International.

Frontier Airlines serves 57 cities in the United States.
