Frontier agrees pilot union deal

Frontier Airlines has reached a tentative agreement for long-term wage and benefits concessions with leaders of the Frontier Airlines Pilots Association (FAPA). The agreement has been approved by the FAPA Board of Directors and now will go before the union membership for a ratification vote.“Our pilots have been the epitome of professionalism throughout this process, and for that, I thank them,” said Frontier President and CEO Sean Menke. “It is important that all of our employees are on board and moving in the same direction during our restructuring efforts. This is a big step forward for us.”

“We understand the challenges Frontier faces right now and our membership has worked to support Frontier through the entire process,” said FAPA President John Stemmler. “This tentative agreement minimizes the damage to our contract, preserves our company’s collaborative culture, and will give Frontier its best chance to survive in the near term and flourish in the long term.”

If the agreement is approved by the FAPA union membership, Frontier will have secured concessions from all of its represented employees - a critical milestone in the company’s ongoing restructuring efforts.
