Frontier Airlines to increase flights to New York, Chicago, Dallas

Frontier Airlines will boost the frequency of its flights from Denver International Airport to four major American cities — New York, Chicago, Dallas and Sacramento, Calif. — in the first half of 2011, the Denver-hubbed carrier said Monday.

The declaration comes 7-1/2 months after Bryan Bedford, president and CEO of Frontier parent Republic Airways Holdings Inc. told the Denver Business Journal that he sought to ramp up the low-cost airline's presence in large cities where it is not as well known.

Bedford's statement came on the day that Republic chose to brand the shared operations of Frontier and Midwest Airlines of Milwaukee under the Frontier name.

The additional flights comprise one new route per day from DIA to New York-LaGuardia Airport, Chicago-Midway Airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Sacramento (Calif.) International Airport.

"This raise in service to Chicago, Dallas, New York and Sacramento gives Frontier's guests with better convenience, flexibility and low fares for their summer travels," said Daniel Shurz, Frontier's vice president of strategy and planning.

Frontier officials also declared that they will resume nonstop seasonal service between Denver and Fairbanks, Alaska ― the only nonstop service between those two destinations ― on May 13.

Indianapolis-based Republic (Nasdaq: RJET) operates a upholding hub at Louisville International Airport.
