Frontier Airlines Announces "Destination-Education"
DENVER (November 12, 1998) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT ) today announced "Destination-Education," a community program designed to support the Colorado education system. Colorado schools will have an option to receive cash back or travel credits by participating in the program. Specifically, "Destination-Education" will provide a cash donation equivalent to two percent, or a travel credit equivalent to five percent, of the net price of any Frontier tickets purchased on the school's behalf.
"Frontier believes an educated and informed consumer is a better customer and since education begins very early in life, we wanted to be part of a program that supports education at the elementary, middle school and high school levels," said Vice President of Marketing Jeff Potter.
"Destination-Education" will begin with a test market involving twelve schools from around the Denver area. Travel agent ticketing is allowed in the program. Interested parties may contact a Frontier representative at (303) 371-7400 ext. 1234, or 1-800-951-9678 with questions regarding the "Destination-Education" program.
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 Airline's OnePass program. Effective mid-December 1998, the airline will serve 19 cities coast to coast with a fleet of 17 Boeing 737 jets. The airline employs approximately 1,100 travel professionals.
