Frontier Airlines Flies Inaugural to Alaska
DENVER (May 9, 2004) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) will begin new service between its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and Anchorage International Airport (ANC) on Sunday, May 9, 2004 with one daily non-stop. Frontier is recognized throughout the nation for its unique customer amenities including low fares, new Airbus jets, 24 Channels of LiveTV and Frontier's generous EarlyReturns frequent flyer program that allows travelers to earn a free ticket at only 15,000 miles - the lowest in the aviation industry.
To kick off the new service, Frontier is offering double miles to its EarlyReturn members who fly to Anchorage prior to June 30, 2004. As a result, members can earn approximately 5,000 miles each way between Denver and Anchorage meaning passengers will be awarded a free round-trip ticket (given at 15,000 miles) in just two trips. To enroll in Frontier's EarlyReturns frequent flyer program go to www.frontierairlines.com.
"While Anchorage is officially our 44th destination, today's inaugural flight represents more than just another city in our system," said Sean Menke, senior vice president of marketing. "Alaska and Frontier share a common bond in that we both offer a unique experience-Frontier's customer service, new Airbus aircraft and in-flight entertainment and Alaska's pristine beauty and extreme adventures. It seems only fitting to have an airline named Frontier providing air service to one of our country's last frontiers."
