Frontier Airlines Offers New Service

17th Mar 2005

Frontier Airlines will begin new service
between its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and Akron-Canton
Airport (CAK) in Ohio, beginning June 15, 2005. The two daily non-stops
between Denver and Akron-Canton will utilize Frontier’s new Airbus
aircraft, with 33 inches of legroom, 24 channels of LiveTV and
pay-per-view movies. The new service will also connect the Cleveland area
and Northeast Ohio to dozens of Frontier cities throughout the West and
Mexico. Frontier separately announced today that it will begin service
between Denver and San Antonio International Airport (SAT) on June 26,
2005 and that it will increase service to match growing demand in Seattle,
Wash. and San Jose, Calif. “Akron-Canton is fast becoming the low fare hub for Northeastern Ohio, and
we are proud to be an integral part of that growth,” said Paul Tate,
senior vice president and chief financial officer. “The strength of the
Akron-Canton airport is in no small part due to their focus on attracting
the very best service for travelers in the region, and we are confident
that Frontier will exceed the expectations of those travelers who have
forgotten what a great experience flying can be. We look forward to
serving Northeast Ohio with LiveTV, pay-per-view movies, comfortable seats
and the industry’s finest service from the industry’s best employees.”

“Frontier Airlines is a perfect match for our airport and Northeast Ohio,”
said Airport Director Fred Krum. “They are the undisputed leader in
affordable west coast flying and we offer a great airport experience that
customers prefer. Flying to Denver and beyond just got a lot better for
travelers in our region.”

Akron Mayor and President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Donald
Plusquellic remarked, “We are delighted Frontier Airlines has chosen
Akron- Canton as its first Ohio community for non-stop service to Denver.
We see this as a vital western link that will help us attract new business
and tourists to our great city.”

“The residents of Canton, Ohio are pleased to welcome Frontier Airlines to
our hometown airport and the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame,” said
Mayor Janet Creighton. “Affordable flights to and from Denver and the West
will be popular with sports fans and business travelers alike.”
