Frontier Airlines is heading north to Alaska again, beginning seasonal service from Denver International Airport (DEN) to Anchorage International Airport (ANC) on Friday, May 8, 2009 with one daily nonstop flight.

To kick off the new service, Frontier is offering double miles to its EarlyReturns(R) members who fly to Anchorage prior to June 30, 2009. As a result, members can earn approximately 5,000 miles each way between Denver and Anchorage, meaning passengers could be awarded a free round-trip ticket (given at 20,000 miles) in just two trips.

“Anchorage has always been special for us because it offers our customers such a unique destination experience,” said Frontier president and CEO Sean Menke. “And we provide a unique flying experience for our customer with our AirFairs product and commitment to customer service. Plus, it’s only fitting to have an airline named Frontier providing air service to one of our country’s last frontiers.”

Frontier originally began service to Anchorage in May 2004.
