Frontier gets green light on Costa Rica

Frontier Airlines’ new service between Denver International Airport (DEN) and
San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO), has been given the U.S. Department of
Transportation’s final approval.The direct flights, which start Friday, Nov. 30, 2007, will be aboard
Frontier’s new fleet of Airbus A319 with 33 inches of legroom and DIRECTV
service and pay-per-view movies in every seat back. Frontier is offering
special introductory fares for as low as $298* roundtrip. Fares must be
purchased by 9:59 p.m. MDT on June 26, 2007, for travel between Nov. 30,
2007, and June 16, 2008.
  Frontier is the only airline to fly directly between Costa Rica and
Denver. Costa Rica is Frontier’s third country served outside of the United
States and 11th non-U.S. city total, with eight cities served in Mexico and
two in Canada. Most recently, Frontier began flying to Vancouver, British
Columbia in Canada and Guadalajara, Mexico. On June 6, 2007, Frontier will
begin flying directly from Dallas to Mazatlan, Mexico, which the airline
already serves via Denver. Frontier’s new Costa Rica service is the Denver-
based carrier’s furthest expansion south to date.
  “Travelers’ response to Frontier’s international service has been
tremendous, and we’re thrilled to offer direct flights between Denver and
Costa Rica, our third country served from the United States,” said John
Happ, senior vice president of marketing and planning for Frontier
Airlines. “Passengers now have a convenient, comfortable way to enjoy Costa
Rica’s culture, visit the country’s amazing beaches, resorts and rain
forests, and experience some of the best eco-tourism opportunities in the
world.”
