Frontier Airlines to Begin Focus City Expansion from Los Angeles International Airport
DENVER (Dec. 18, 2003) - Marking the first expansion of point-to-point routes outside of its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub, Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today announced plans to begin service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Kansas City International Airport (MCI), Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL), and Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP), beginning Apr. 11, 2004. The airline will operate two daily non-stop flights between Los Angeles (LAX) and each of these three cities. The new routes will complement Frontier's existing six daily non-stops between Denver and Los Angeles, as well as its service between Denver and Ontario (ONT), San Diego (SAN) and Orange County (SNA).
In addition to Frontier's expansion in Los Angeles, the airline also announced separately today that it will start one daily non-stop flight from its Denver hub to Anchorage International Airport (ANC) on May 9, 2004 and two daily non-stops to Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) on Apr. 11, 2004, as well as two-daily non-stops to El Paso International Airport (ELP) on Feb. 8, 2004 that will replace its existing service via Albuquerque.
"Today marks a critical and exciting juncture for Frontier Airlines, its employees and its loyal customers," said Senior Vice President of Marketing Sean Menke. "We have focused on the growth of our hub in Denver for the past ten years, and we feel comfortable that we are now at a point that we can begin to fully leverage and utilize that asset as we begin to offer non-stop service outside of Denver to complement our hub schedule. The result will be better utilization of our planes as well as our facilities, and more options for travelers in Los Angeles, which has always been our most popular destination. We look forward to making our mark in Los Angeles, one of the world's greatest destinations, and complementing the extensive service we already offer in Southern California."
