We’ve got our head in the clouds...literally. Tampa International announced Frontier Airlines is bringing its brand new aircraft – the Airbus A321neo to the airport. This fuel-efficient airplane is powered by an ultra-efficient GTF engines created by Pratt & Whitney.

Built to be “America’s greenest aircraft,” Frontier’s new ride features a delivery of around 120 miles per gallon per seat compared with the industry rate of 51 miles per gallon per seat, according to Sierra Magazine. This mileage boost will help significantly reduce fuel consumption, and decreases the company’s impact on the environment

Talk about love at first flight and an adventure that awaits. The plane also shows off brand new uniform to commemorate the launch.
