Frontier Airlines Announces Advanced Internet Booking Capabilities
DENVER (March 24, 1999) -- ; Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT ) today announced the implementation of a new Internet booking engine that enables full access to Frontier's inventory via the World Wide Web. With Frontier's enhanced Web site capabilities, customers can view actual inventory and availability of the airline's schedule and prices.
The booking capabilities are the result of technological advancements made by EDS, which also provides Frontier's state of the art reservations system. The airline recently renewed its agreement with EDS to provide reservations and telecommunications services.
"This is another indication that Frontier is responding to our customers' needs," said Vice President of Marketing Jeff Potter. "Our customers have told us this technology is important to them and we are responding accordingly. The Internet is the great equalizer of our time and when you combine Internet convenience with Frontier's legendary Spirit of the West customer service, it provides an unbeatable travel experience."
Through special Internet offers, customers will be able to take advantage of special fares while the airline sells additional seats to various cities across its extensive route system. In addition, the airline plans to offer future e-mail "headsup" messages and explore other unique distribution methods. Frontier's Web site may be viewed at http://www.frontierairlines.com .
Denver-based Frontier Airlines commenced operations on July 5, 1994. Unlike other airlines, Frontier's low fares do not have a Saturday night stay requirement. In addition, Frontier offers frequent flier mileage points in Continental Airlines' OnePass program. The airline currently serves 19 cities coast to coast with a fleet of 17 Boeing 737 jets and employs approximately 1,400 travel professionals.
