Frontier Announces First Ever Denver-Dayton Non-Stops and Becomes Fresno?s First Low-Fare Carrier
DENVER (May 26, 2005) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) will begin new, non-stop service between its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and both Dayton International Airport (DAY) and Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT), beginning August 31, 2005. Each market will feature two daily roundtrips aboard 70-seat Canadair Regional Jets, operated by Horizon Air as Frontier JetExpress.
Fresno welcomes first low fare service
"This is a tremendous accomplishment not only for the City of Fresno but for the entire Central Valley," said Fresno Mayor Alan Autry. "Frontier's low fares will spearhead the Valley's economic growth. We have worked hard to attract Frontier to our community and anticipate the service will grow and prosper with these two flights representing only a beginning for this relationship."
Frontier continues a major expansion into the Buckeye State
"Strong bookings for our new Akron/Canton service emboldened us to look toward adding more cities in Ohio," said Potter. "Dayton is the fifth largest metropolitan market without non-stop service to Denver so we saw a great opportunity to bring service to the West and Mexico to an underserved market, which is an ideal situation for Frontier."
Apart from Akron/Canton and Dayton, Frontier has brought the first non-stop service to a number of city-pairs over the past several years. Frontier recently commenced the only Denver non-stops to Little Rock, Arkansas and was the first U.S. carrier to offer non-stop scheduled service from Denver to the Mexican resorts of Cancun, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. Frontier was also the first airline to offer scheduled service to Cancun from Salt Lake City, Kansas City, and Nashville. In addition, Frontier was recently the first carrier to request permission to fly non-stop from Denver to Cozumel.
