Frontier Airlines Re-inaugurates Service to Washington National
DENVER (Dec. 12, 2001) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT ) is proud to re-inaugurate service today into Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). The airline began operating one daily non-stop round-trip flight between DCA and Denver International Airport (DIA) on Sept. 7, 2000 after receiving two "beyond-perimeter" slots as part of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century ("AIR 21"). The airline suspended service to DCA when that airport was closed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. With today's resumed service, Frontier operates one of only four nonstop, "beyond perimeter" flights at DCA, and provides the only nonstop service between DCA and Denver International Airport.
Frontier's President and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Potter stated: "We appreciate the diligent efforts of the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation in establishing enhanced security measures throughout our air system and especially at Reagan National Airport. With our recently expanded codeshare with Great Lakes and our newest codeshare partner with Mesa Airlines, we look forward to providing a convenient, affordable, one-stop option to many smaller communities via Denver International Airport."
Following is the new Washington National flight schedule:
