Frontier Files to Expand its Popular Cancun Service with Additional Point-to-Point Flights
DENVER, Colo (June 17, 2004) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today announced its intention to expand its Mexico service by offering non-stop service to Cancun (CUN). Following Frontier's recent announcement that it received approval for flights from Cancun to Salt Lake City (SLC) and Kansas City (MCI), today's announcement, if approved, could bring the total number of Frontier cities with non-stop service to/from Cancun to six. The Company has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for authorization to serve Cancun, Mexico from Nashville International Airport (BNA) three times a week, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) once a week and it has re-applied for service to/from Lambert-St.Louis International Airport (STL) for service three times a week.
"Mexico continues to be a strong destination for Frontier," said Sean Menke, senior vice president of marketing. "Passenger bookings and the word-of-mouth excitement generated from our recent announcement of new non-stop service to Cancun from Kansas City and Salt Lake City underscores the fact that there is demand for non-stop service to the beautiful beaches of Cancun. We feel that Frontier has an opportunity to answer that demand with one of the best products available in the industry including new aircraft with 24 channels of LiveTV, 33 inches of leg room and the industry's best employees providing unparalleled customer service."
If granted authority from the DOT, the Cancun service would begin on November 7, 2004.
