Frontier Airlines will offer a limited run of direct flights between Portland and Tampa, Florida, beginning in April, the Portland International Jetport announced Tuesday.

The budget airline will fly between the two cities on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays between April 13 and May 11, the jetport said in a news release. The cost of a round-trip flight will range from $213 to $353, depending on the departure and return dates, according to Frontier’s website.

“These additional flights to Florida are a sign that as Mainers are completing their vaccination cycles, they are looking to travel,” Airport Director Paul Bradbury said in the release.

The news comes about a month after the jetport announced that Delta Air Lines would begin offering daily nonstop service between Portland and Minneapolis/St. Paul in May.

The jetport also announced in February that American Airlines would expand its seasonal weekly flight service from Portland to Miami and begin offering year-round flights in June.
