Frontier Airlines Flies Inaugural to Alaska

Frontier Airlines will begin new
service between its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and Anchorage
International Airport (ANC) on Sunday, May 9, 2004 with one daily
non-stop. Frontier is recognized throughout the nation for its unique
customer amenities including low fares, new Airbus jets, 24 Channels of
LiveTV and Frontier’s generous EarlyReturns frequent flyer program that
allows travelers to earn a free ticket at only 15,000 miles—the lowest
in the aviation industry. To kick off the new service, Frontier is offering double miles to its
EarlyReturn members who fly to Anchorage prior to June 30, 2004. As a
result, members can earn approximately 5,000 miles each way between Denver
and Anchorage meaning passengers will be awarded a free round-trip ticket
(given at 15,000 miles) in just two trips. To enroll in Frontier’s

“While Anchorage is officially our 44th destination, today’s inaugural
flight represents more than just another city in our system,” said Sean
Menke, senior vice president of marketing. “Alaska and Frontier share a
common bond in that we both offer a unique experience—Frontier’s
customer service, new Airbus aircraft and in-flight entertainment and
Alaska’s pristine beauty and extreme adventures. It seems only fitting to
have an airline named Frontier providing air service to one of our
country’s last frontiers.”
