Frontier Files for International Service to Mexico
DENVER, (Aug 6, 2002) Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today announced that it has filed applications with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for authorization to serve Cancun, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan, Mexico from its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub.
In its filing with the DOT, the airline said the proposed service between DEN and Cancun, DEN and Cabo San Lucas and DEN and Mazatlan would provide the only scheduled service between the cities. The new service would offer significantly improved competitive service between Denver and the three Mexico destinations.
International service is an exciting next step in Frontiers growth, and we believe there will be strong leisure demand for service between Frontiers hometown of Denver as well as our connecting markets and these exotic destinations, said Frontier President and CEO Jeff Potter.
Currently in its ninth year of operations, Denver-based Frontier Airlines is the second largest jet service carrier at Denver International Airport with a fleet of 34 aircraft and employing approximately 3,000 aviation professionals. Frontier and its affiliate Frontier JetExpress currently serve 34 U.S. cities with 170 daily flights. In 1999, 2000 and 2001, Frontier's maintenance and engineering department received the Federal Aviation Administration's highest award, the Diamond Certificate of Excellence, in recognition of 100 percent of its maintenance and engineering employees completing advanced aircraft maintenance training programs. In April 2002, Entrepreneur ranked Frontier one of two "Best Low-Fare Airlines," and in September 2001, Fortune ranked Frontier 41st on its 100 Fastest Growing Companies list.
