eTN  Sep 11, 2008

DENVER, CO (September 11, 2008) - Frontier Airlines announced today the newest city in its Rocky Mountain expansion. On December 18, 2008, Frontier will begin daily nonstop service between Denver and Steamboat Springs/Hayden, CO. Frontier will serve the Steamboat Springs market with its fleet of 10 Bombardier Q400 aircraft operated by Lynx Aviation, a subsidiary of Frontier Holdings Inc.

"With Frontier's new service, skiers and snowboarders from across the country have convenient travel options to reach Steamboat-Ski Town, USA and its legendary Champagne Powder snow this winter," said Rob Perlman, vice president of sales & marketing for Steamboat. "With the addition of Frontier, Steamboat further solidifies its position as being the most conveniently accessed resort in the Colorado Rocky Mountains."

"Steamboat Springs is the perfect addition to Frontier's lineup of mountain resort destinations," said Frontier president and CEO Sean Menke. "The Q400 aircraft is really tailored for this kind of market and provides the little extras that will make traveling to and from Steamboat Springs a pleasure for our customers."

As an added convenience, Frontier will remove four of the 74 seats inside the aircraft to make room for skis and other snow equipment on board. This allows Frontier customers to go straight from the plane to the slopes without delay. The seasonal Steamboat Springs service will run from December 18, 2008 to April 22, 2009. Frontier's EarlyReturns(R) members will earn double miles on Steamboat Springs/Hayden flights through January 31, 2009.
