Frontier Airlines Launches "Countdown to Cancun": Warmth is Just Seven Days and $89 Away
DENVER (Feb. 18, 2005) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) is starting the clock and revving its engines, readying for non-stop service from St. Louis to Cancun. In just one week, travelers can be basking in the sun on Cancun's world-famous white beaches, all for just $89* one-way. So, buy now and start your own countdown to Cancun, whether you plan to travel next week, next month, or beyond.
The $89* one-way price is available today, Feb. 18 through Feb. 21, 2005 for travel from Feb. 25 through May 22, 2005.
With the new service, Frontier more than doubles previous scheduled, non-stop service between St. Louis and Cancun. "We're among an elite group as one of only two airlines to offer scheduled, non-stop service between St. Louis and Cancun," said Senior Director of Marketing and Communications Andrew Hudson. "The St. Louis community has been tremendously supportive of Frontier, and we can't think of a better way to repay their generosity than with low fares and the industry's best service to a premier vacation destination like Cancun."
Frontier will celebrate the inaugural St. Louis to Cancun flight throughout the day on Friday, Feb. 25, leading up to the first flight's departure at 4:25 p.m. The airline will bring the taste of Mexico to St. Louis with morning Mexican pastries and giveaways. The celebration will continue at Frontier's gate D6 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
Flights between St. Louis and Cancun will operate three times per week, on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. Passengers can also fly non-stop from Denver to the beautiful beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo.
Passengers on Frontier-to Mexico or any destination coast-to-coast-enjoy unique amenities including low fares, new Airbus jets, 24 channels of LiveTV, first-run movies on demand, and Frontier's generous EarlyReturns frequent flyer program, which allows travelers to earn a free ticket at only 15,000 miles domestically and 25,000 miles to Mexico-the lowest in the aviation industry.
