DENVER — Frontier Airlines said Monday it plans to add nonstop seasonal service between Branson and both Austin, Texas, and Phoenix.

The airline said it will be the only one offering nonstop service on those routes.

The Branson-to-Austin service will operate Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Sept. 16 through Dec. 14. The Branson-to-Phoenix service will operate Saturdays from Sept. 17 through Dec. 10. Austin service will be provided on 50-seat Embraer 145 aircraft, while Phoenix service will operate on 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft.

The airline already serves Denver and Milwaukee nonstop from Branson.

Introductory fares begin at $89 each way for the Branson to Austin nonstop route and $105 each way for the Branson to Phoenix nonstop route. The fares will be available on the company's website through Sept. 17 for travel through Oct. 31.

Frontier is a subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings Inc. In midday trading, Republic shares jumped 54 cents, or 12 percent, to $5.20.
