DENVER — Frontier Airlines will offer flights connecting Denver to Providence, R.I., starting in August.

The Denver-based airline said it will be the only carrier flying nonstop between the state capitals beginning Aug. 14.

Daily flights on an Airbus A320 will depart Providence at 11 a.m. EDT and arrive in Denver at approximately 1:32 p.m. MDT.

Flights leaving Denver are at 1:15 p.m. MDT and arriving in Providence at 7:09 p.m. MDT.

In April, it was announced Frontier would be the first airline in three years to go public with an initial public offering. According to Bloomberg News, it would occur in the second quarter.

Frontier reported a net income of $200 million last year, up more than 40 percent since 2014.
