Frontier JetExpress currently offers service between STL and Denver International Airport (DEN). Frontier will begin contacting those passengers who are affected by the discontinuation of service to/from St. Louis to assist in re-accommodating them.

As a result, the difficult decision was made to discontinue St. Louis service."
