Frontier Airlines began as the local carrier for Denver, Colorado in the 1940’s, and was expanded in the late 1980’s. In 1993, the air carrier was given a facelift and began routes between Denver and several cities in North Dakota. Republic Airways Holdings Inc. later became the owner of the airline, which still has its hub in Denver.
Frontier has routes between Denver and nearly all 50 states, as well as several cities in Mexico and the Caribbean. Most routes originating from cities other than Denver will include a stop at the Denver airport. Cities served by the airline include San Diego, Seattle, Detroit, Nashville and New York City.
More than 50 planes are a part of the Frontier Airlines fleet. The fleet includes 16 Airbus A320s and 37 Airbus A319s.
What to Expect From Frontier Airlines:
Frontier Airlines flights offer ways to stay busy in the air, including DirectTV® service. On routes that are shorter than two hours, flyers can choose from television shows, and longer flights also afford a choice of movies. The cost for the service depends on the length of the flight. In-flight wireless Internet is also available for a fee on Embraer 190 planes.
Planes on Frontier have three types of seating: standard, select, and stretch. Standard seats are near the back of the plane and have only about 30 inches of leg room. Select seats have the same amount of leg room, but are closer to the front of the plane and give travelers a better boarding position. Stretch seats are in the front of the plane and have closer to 40 inches of leg room, and also give travelers priority boarding.
As of 2012, Frontier Airlines charges $20 for the first and second bag on basic fares, and $50 for each additional bag. Travelers who purchase select or stretch seating, or who earn enough points with the frequent flyer program, can get two free checked bags.
