ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- We’ll soon be able to fly to a new destination out of the Rockford Airport. Frontier Airlines is officially launching its service to and from Denver, Colorado.

115 passengers will arrive in Rockford Thursday night for the first new flight from Denver.

Friday morning, the first flight to Denver leaves from Rockford. The service has allowed the airport to hire four part-time workers to help with customer service, check in and boarding. Also, the move could also help area businesses.

Interim Executive Director Amy Ott said, "As people come in they'll rent cars, car rental agencies should see some additional activity and even more indirectly, if they're coming into town and visiting, they might stay at the hotels or take advantage of our restaurants and things like that."

Ott says 'Emry Air,' which also flies out of RFD will benefit as well because their crews will help service Frontier's planes.

Frontier will have three flights a week to Denver on Monday, Wednesdays and Friday leaving at 9:19 in the morning.

Do you think the new service from Rockford to Denver will be successful in the long run?
