On the new international routes, Shurz said: "Frontier has rapidly expanded its international service and continues to identify new opportunities to stimulate tourism demand with low fares and convenient flights."
Cancun has been a popular choice for American tourists looking to get away during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to be. The Mexican beach town is the No. 1 most popular destination for Thanksgiving week and the No. 2 most popular for Christmas, according to new data from Expedia shared with Travel + Leisure. Punta Cana came in at No. 5 on the list for both holidays.
