“Hobby Airport offers great benefits to Frontier’s guests,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s vice president of strategy and planning. “In addition to its easy-to-use refurbished terminal, Hobby offers convenient access to downtown Houston as well as to great tourist attractions such as NASA and Galveston.”

Hobby Airport serves 8 million passengers annually. The domestic airport has a strong performance record in customer satisfaction surveys and was named as America’s Best Airport on a Travel + Leisure online survey by the magazine’s readers.

To showcase the airport switch, the Houston Airport System Airport Rangers will ride out on horseback to escort Frontier Airlines on its journey to Hobby Airport, beginning at 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 along the John F. Kennedy Boulevard feeder road.
