Frontier Airlines Launches ‘Countdown to Cancun’

Frontier Airlines is starting
the clock and revving its engines, readying for non-stop service from St.
Louis to Cancun. In just one week, travelers can be basking in the sun on
Cancun’s world-famous white beaches, all for just $89* one-way. So, buy
now and start your own countdown to Cancun, whether you plan to travel
next week, next month, or beyond. The $89* one-way price is available today, Feb. 18 through Feb. 21, 2005
for travel from Feb. 25 through May 22, 2005.

With the new service, Frontier more than doubles previous scheduled,
non-stop service between St. Louis and Cancun. “We’re among an elite group
as one of only two airlines to offer scheduled, non-stop service between
St. Louis and Cancun,” said Senior Director of Marketing and
Communications Andrew Hudson. “The St. Louis community has been
tremendously supportive of Frontier, and we can’t think of a better way to
repay their generosity than with low fares and the industry’s best service
to a premier vacation destination like Cancun.”

Frontier will celebrate the inaugural St. Louis to Cancun flight
throughout the day on Friday, Feb. 25, leading up to the first flight’s
departure at 4:25 p.m. The airline will bring the taste of Mexico to St.
Louis with morning Mexican pastries and giveaways. The celebration will
continue at Frontier’s gate D6 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

Flights between St. Louis and Cancun will operate three times per week, on
Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. Passengers can also fly non-stop from Denver
to the beautiful beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and

Passengers on Frontier—to Mexico or any destination coast-to-coast—
enjoy unique amenities including low fares, new Airbus jets, 24 channels
of LiveTV, first-run movies on demand, and Frontier’s generous
EarlyReturns frequent flyer program, which allows travelers to earn a free
ticket at only 15,000 miles domestically and 25,000 miles to Mexico—the
lowest in the aviation industry.

offering double miles to its EarlyReturns members who fly the route by
