Frontier Airlines Resumes On-Board Food Service
DENVER (Dec. 11, 2001) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) announced today that effective Wednesday, Dec. 12, the airline will begin reintroducing its on-board food service for flights longer than 90 minutes. The airline temporarily suspended food service on all of its flights, effective Oct. 1, 2001, as a cost-savings measure and as a security precaution.
"We are extremely grateful to our customers and our employees for their patience as we evaluated our financial position and implemented procedures to meet the enhanced security measures that have been put into place during the last three months," explained President and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Potter. "Our customers have returned to the skies more quickly than we expected and based on the feedback from our flight crews, it became clear that restoring food service on our flights was the next natural step in restoring Frontier's service levels."
Frontier's reintroduction of food service will begin on Dec. 12 with a light menu. On flights that last longer than 90 minutes, the airline will serve food such as bagels, crackers, cereal or unique deli sandwich wraps and chips, depending on the length of the flight. Frontier will continue to offer a full beverage selection on all flights.
Denver-based Frontier Airlines is the second largest jet service carrier at Denver International Airport, serving 25 cities coast to coast with a fleet of 29 aircraft and employing approximately 2,300 aviation professionals. In June 2001, BusinessWeek ranked Frontier 14th on its list of Hot Growth Companies and in September 2001, Fortune magazine ranked Frontier 41st on its 100 Fastest Growing Companies list.
