Frontier will serve the Des Moines market with new six-days-per-week flights beginning Oct. 24, 2010. Frontier Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: RJET)
Special introductory fares for this new service (for example: DSM to DEN for $59 each way, DSM to Seattle or San Francisco for $109 each way) will be available for sale for a limited time on FrontierAirlines.com beginning today, Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2010.
“Along with Frontier’s three daily nonstops to Milwaukee, we are pleased to offer very affordable direct service to Denver,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier vice president of strategy and planning. “With nonstop service to Milwaukee and now Denver, Frontier provides Des Moines-area travelers with economical access to the east and west with connections to Frontier’s more than 70 destinations across the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica.”
