Frontier Airlines Brings Low Fares to Detroit and Tulsa
DENVER (March 2, 2005) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) will begin new service between its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and two new destinations in May 2005: Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) on May 8, 2005 and Tulsa International Airport (TUL) on May 22, 2005. The two daily non-stops between Denver and Detroit will utilize Frontier's new Airbus aircraft, with 33 inches of legroom and 24 channels of LiveTV. Twice-daily service between Denver and Tulsa will be aboard 70-seat Canadair Regional Jets, operated by Horizon Air as Frontier JetExpress. Both routes will offer dozens of connecting opportunities to Frontier cities throughout the West and in Mexico.
In addition, during May Frontier will also increase service to match growing demand in San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, Portland, Boise, Spokane, and Billings.
"May will mark an exciting period of growth for Frontier, as we introduce new destinations and additional frequencies to several popular cities," said Andrew Hudson, senior director of marketing and communications. "Detroit and Tulsa are strong business travel markets and, with Detroit on the map, we now offer low fares to 24 of the top 25 destinations from our hometown of Denver. We're proud to bring comfortable planes, outstanding customer service and low fares to these markets, as well as greater frequency for passengers flying to some of our most popular destinations."
"Detroit Metropolitan Airport has made a sustained effort to attract low-cost carriers to Detroit because we feel our passengers should have a variety of choices when they travel," stated Lester Robinson, Wayne County Airport Authority CEO. "The addition of Frontier to our growing roster of LCC's is a testament to those efforts and for the Detroit Metro, Frontier means more travel options for our passengers and more jobs for our community."
Mary Smith, director of marketing at the Tulsa Airport Authority said, "Tulsa travelers are thrilled to welcome Frontier Airlines, a low fare and reliable choice for travel to the West. The schedule allows for a day's work in Denver without an overnight stay, all at fares that will bring a welcome relief to our community."
