An airline is announcing it will begin non-stop service to 14 new destinations from Dulles International Airport.

Frontier Airlines is coming to Dulles and is kicking off its new, non-stop service with a promotion. It's offering $15 fares for a limited time: the sale will last just 12 hours. You might have trouble snagging tickets, though: The airline's website has been struggling with the traffic.

Direct service to Orlando, Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Tampa begins in August. Then in September you can fly direct to Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Memphis, Fort Myers, St. Louis and Jacksonville.

Dulles has seen its number of domestic flights dropping. The number of domestic passengers traveling through the airport fell six percent over 12 months ending in January.

Frontier is a discount airline that also operates out of Reagan National and BWI.
