New routes and expanded services available at Kansas City International Airport for upcoming busy travel season


Kansas City, Missouri – Kansas City International Airport (KCI) is set to welcome an array of new nonstop flight options, enhancing connectivity for travelers during the upcoming busy travel period.

Frontier Airlines announced the introduction of a nonstop flight connecting Kansas City to Philadelphia, starting in May. This addition is part of Frontier’s broader expansion, which includes new nonstop services to several other destinations from Philadelphia, such as Knoxville, Portland (Maine), Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago O’Hare, Indianapolis, Columbus, St. Louis, and Pensacola, as reported by NBC10 Philadelphia.

In another update for KCI travelers, Alaska Airlines has transformed its seasonal route to Portland into a year-round service. Initially launched in February 2016, the route was scaled back to operate only during the summer months starting in 2017. However, over the past two years, it has consistently run from May through September. Besides Portland, Alaska Airlines also connects Kansas City with Seattle through another nonstop flight. Southwest Airlines continues to provide seasonal service to Portland, further broadening options for passengers headed to the Pacific Northwest.

As a result of the anticipated spring and summer travel surge, Spirit Airlines is set to resume its seasonal service to Fort Lauderdale on March 8, offering flights three times a week. This schedule is designed to accommodate travelers looking for sunny getaways during the spring break period. Spirit will also connect Kansas City with Tampa through nonstop flights from March 7 to April 9, targeting spring break vacationers. For those seeking more permanent connections to these Florida destinations, Southwest Airlines offers ongoing nonstop flights from KCI to both Fort Lauderdale and Tampa, ensuring a variety of choices for travelers planning their next vacation or business trip.
