OKC is getting a new airline, who is it?

Will Rogers World Airport announced late Friday afternoon Oklahoma City will soon be getting an new carrier and new non-stop service. Only they aren't saying who it is yet. The new carrier will be revealed at a new conference Tuesday at the airport.

Until then here's some speculation as to who the new carrier might be.

Frontier returns: The budget carrier with the cool tail art  flies to 60 destinations. It left Oklahoma City in 2014, and it might be poised for a return. Its hub is in Denver and Frontier also flies to Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.

OKC gets in the Spirit: The ultra low cost carrier charges for virtually everything, but it has seen expansion in recent years. Spirit flies to 60 destinations including more than a dozen spots in the Caribbean. It currently operates flights from Dallas and Houston. 

JetBlue: The largest of these three carriers, JetBlue operates flights to more than 106 destinations with 230 planes. When it began JetBlue was considered mostly an east coast airline but it has expanded over the last several decades and now operates flights all over the United States including Dallas, Austin and Houston, as well anywhere in the Caribbean you would want to go.

Currently Oklahoma City is served by Delta, Southwest, United, American, Allegiant and Alaska Airlines.
