    TULSA, Okla. - A new airline service will come to Tulsa International Airport.

    Two new cities will join Tulsa's route map: Washington Dulles and San Jose.

    Airport and airline representatives made the announcement Thursday; FOX23 streamed it live and shared the new routes in a push alert on the FOX23 News app.

    Mike Neal, president and CEO of the Tulsa Regional Chamber, shared this statement: 

    “The Tulsa Regional Chamber applauds Frontier Airlines’ addition of nonstop destinations from Tulsa International Airport to San José and Washington, D.C. Direct flights not only give northeast Oklahoma residents additional options for travel, but they are a significant business driver for the region. These two destinations open additional commercial opportunities between the Tulsa region and the Bay Area and our nation’s capital.

     

    “At the Chamber’s Annual Meeting in January, Steve Bradshaw, our 2018 board chair and president and CEO of BOK Financial, made the case for an enhanced effort to recruit additional direct flights to Tulsa. Relocating or expanding companies regularly consider the number and frequency of nonstop destinations when evaluating prospective cities. These additional flights will help the Chamber better make the case for companies to build out their workforces here rather than in other markets.”
