Syracuse, N.Y. -- Frontier Airlines will start seasonal, non-stop service from Syracuse to Tampa, Fla., in November.

The discount airline said Wednesday it will operate the flights between Syracuse Hancock International Airport and Tampa International Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays starting Nov. 15.

On Tuesday, Frontier announced seasonal non-stop service between Syracuse and Fort Myers, Fla. Those flights will also be three days a week.

"The greater Syracuse community has embraced our "low fares done right" philosophy," Frontier spokesman Richard Oliver said in a statement Wednesday. "We are proud to grow our commitment and bring even more low fares to the area, now with an additional two non-stop destinations."

Ground crews load luggage onto a Frontier Airlines plane at Syracuse Hancock International Airport on July 7.  

Frontier began serving Syracuse July 2 when it launched non-stop service two days a week to Denver and Raleigh/Durham, N.C. On Aug. 12, it will begin offering non-stop service to Chicago's O'Hare airport three days a week and to Orlando, Fla., two days a week.

"We are thrilled to see Frontier expand their footprint in the Syracuse market with the addition of Fort Myers and Tampa," said Syracuse airport director Christina Callahan. "Clearly, this market has responded strongly to all of the new service, proving 'if you build it, they will come.'"

The airport is due to complete a major terminal renovation and upgrade project on Oct. 31.
