The route changes are "seasonal adjustments," according to Frontier spokesman Jim Faulkner. "We'll evaluate the performance of these markets and then determine which ones will return next year.

Remaining are Frontier's year-rund flights from Atlanta to Denver, Los Angeles, New York LaGuardia, Las Vegas, Orlando, Miami, San Francisco and Salt Lake City.
