Frontier Airlines to Begin Focus City Expansion

Marking the first expansion of point-to-point routes outside of its Denver
International Airport (DEN) hub, Frontier Airlines today announced plans
to begin service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and
Kansas City International Airport (MCI), Lambert-St. Louis International
Airport (STL), and Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP),
beginning Apr. 11, 2004. The airline will operate two daily non-stop
flights between Los Angeles (LAX) and each of these three cities. The new
routes will complement Frontier`s existing six daily non-stops between
Denver and Los Angeles, as well as its service between Denver and Ontario
(ONT), San Diego (SAN) and Orange County (SNA).

In addition to Frontier`s expansion in Los Angeles, the airline also
announced separately today that it will start one daily non-stop flight
from its Denver hub to Anchorage International Airport (ANC) on May 9,
2004 and two daily non-stops to Washington Dulles International Airport
(IAD) on Apr. 11, 2004, as well as two-daily non-stops to El Paso
International Airport (ELP) on Feb. 8, 2004 that will replace its existing
service via Albuquerque.

“Today marks a critical and exciting juncture for Frontier Airlines, its
employees and its loyal customers,” said Senior Vice President of
Marketing Sean Menke. “We have focused on the growth of our hub in Denver
for the past ten years, and we feel comfortable that we are now at a point
that we can begin to fully leverage and utilize that asset as we begin to
offer non-stop service outside of Denver to complement our hub schedule.
The result will be better utilization of our planes as well as our
facilities, and more options for travelers in Los Angeles, which has
always been our most popular destination. We look forward to making our
mark in Los Angeles, one of the world`s greatest destinations, and
complementing the extensive service we already offer in Southern

The airline published an introductory fare sale for flights to/from Los
Angeles with fares starting as low as $198 round-trip between Los Angeles
and Minneapolis/St. Paul, Kansas City and St. Louis. Introductory fares
require a round-trip purchase and are available for purchase through 10:00
p.m. MT on Jan. 31, 2004 for travel beginning Apr. 11, 2004.

To celebrate the new service, members of Frontier Airlines` frequent flyer
program, EarlyReturns, will receive double bonus miles for travel to and
from Los Angeles between Apr. 11, 2004 and June 30, 2004. To enroll in the
program, customers can visit Frontier`s Web site at, pick up an EarlyReturns enrollment form
