People want to go to Las Vegas, so Frontier Airlines said Thursday it’s adding four new destinations starting in August to and from Las Vegas.

“We’re flying where people in underserved markets want to go, and that includes Las Vegas,” Frontier spokesman Richard Oliver said. “What’s great about planes is that they’re not a fixed asset, you can place them where people want to go and where the demand is greatest.”

Frontier, whose home base is in Denver, will offer $59 one-way introductory fares for flights from McCarran International to airports in Memphis, Tennessee; Des Moines, Iowa; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Madison, Wisconsin. Those new routes join new flights announced earlier this year to Washington D.C.’s Dulles International Airport; Indianapolis; Bismarck, North Dakota; and Sioux Falls, South Dakota, beginning in June and July.

Frontier will then have service to 24 cities with 157 weekly departures from Las Vegas.

The airline also revealed plans to open a new crew base at McCarran in the near future.
