Frontier Airlines Simplifies its Domestic Denver Pricing Structure
DENVER (Feb. 5, 2003) Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today unveiled a new, simplified pricing structure for all domestic fares into and out of its Denver International Airport hub. As part of the new structure, Frontier's highest-level business fares will be reduced by 25 to 45 percent, and Frontier's lowest available walk-up fares will be reduced by 38 to 77 percent. The new Denver structure, which is comprised of six fares, caps all fares to and from Denver at $399 or $499 one-way, excluding passenger facility, security or segment fees, depending on length of haul. Unlike other airlines, these fares can be booked each way, allowing customers to get the best price on both the inbound and outbound portion of their itinerary; no round-trip purchase is required. Frontier's new fare structure removes the advance purchase requirements of past pricing structures. In addition, off peak and peak pricing has been eliminated, and Saturday night stayovers are not required. These fares are not available to/from Frontier's international destinations or to/from cities served exclusively by Frontier JetExpress, operated by Mesa Airlines, Inc., including Oakland, Ontario and Wichita.
"The people of Frontier have worked tirelessly to build an extremely competitive cost structure that will support innovative, creative revenue strategies while allowing us to operate with realistic breakeven load factors," said Vice President Marketing and Planning Sean Menke. "Our new, simplified fare structure makes it easier to do business with Frontier. As we move forward, we're going to continue to look at policies that appear outdated and burdensome to consumers, and make appropriate changes, whenever possible, that will create a more flexible, more affordable and ultimately more enjoyable travel experience for our customers."
Frontier's new Denver fares are available on Frontier's Web site at www.frontierairlines.com, by calling Frontier Airlines at 1-800-432-1359 or by consulting your professional travel agent.
Denver-based Frontier Airlines employs approximately 3,100 aviation professionals and is the second largest jet service carrier at Denver International Airport. Frontier and its regional jet partner Frontier JetExpress offer service to 39 cities. Frontier's fleet consists of 37 aircraft, which feature a single-class configuration.
