Frontier Airlines Announces Portland Service
PORTLAND, Ore. (April 30, 1999) - Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ: FRNT ) today announced it will begin service to Portland, effective June 14, 1999. The airline will operate two daily nonstop flights with Boeing 737 jets. With the new service, Frontier will offer convenient connections from Portland, through its Denver hub, to Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington DC, Boston, Chicago/Midway, Dallas/Fort Worth, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York/La Guardia and Omaha. To celebrate the new service, the airline announced special introductory fares, starting as low as $99* between Portland and Denver. The airline plans to implement its Portland service with its nineteenth aircraft, a Boeing 737-300. The aircraft is being leased from New York-based C.I.T. Leasing Corporation and is scheduled for delivery in mid-May.
"Expanding our services, either through the addition of new cities or increasing frequencies to existing markets, is the best evidence of our continued success," said Frontier Vice President of Marketing Jeff Potter. "Portland is the nineteenth top business destination from Denver and brings the total number of top 25 business markets Frontier serves to 15."
"We are very pleased to have Frontier Airlines extend its service to Portland. Frontier gives our customers another option to Denver and beyond to destinations in the eastern United States, such as Boston and Baltimore," said John Brockley, Port of Portland aviation director. The Port owns and operates Portland International Airport.
