Frontier Airlines Begins Service to Northwest Colorado

December 18, 2008

Steamboat Springs/Hayden is the newest Colorado market for Frontier

DENVER, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — This morning, Frontier Airlines began service to its fifth Colorado market, Steamboat Springs/Hayden. The inaugural flight arrived at Yampa Valley Regional Airport, bringing affordable air travel to northwest Colorado.

Steamboat Springs/Hayden is similar to the other five cities in Colorado that Frontier currently serves, all of which are shorter-haul markets, better suited to leveraging the economics of the 74-seat Bombardier Q400. A fleet of ten Q400 aircraft are operated for Frontier by Frontier Airlines Holdings, Inc. subsidiary Lynx Aviation.

“Lynx Aviation has been a tremendous success in Colorado so far, and we think Steamboat Springs/Hayden will only continue that trend,” said Frontier President and CEO Sean Menke. “Now, more Coloradans will have access to the high-quality, low-cost airfare Frontier provides. Our service to these Colorado destinations makes it easier than ever for people to visit this great state and experience all it has to offer.”

Following is the Steamboat Springs/Hayden flight schedule:

    3387             3:45 p.m.   4:40 p.m.   Daily

The seasonal Steamboat Springs/Hayden service will run from Dec. 18, 2008 to April 21, 2009. Frontier’s EarlyReturns(R) members will earn double miles on Steamboat Springs/Hayden flights through January 31, 2009.

The quiet, fuel-efficient and technologically-advanced Q400 aircraft are ideal for flying into smaller markets and allow Frontier to bring its industry-leading customer service to underserved markets unreachable with its larger aircraft. Frontier’s new service is expected to reduce the average fare in many of the new markets by as much as 50%. Frontier currently serves four other destinations in Colorado with Lynx Aviation including: Aspen, Colorado Springs, Durango and Grand Junction.
