Seasonal Service to Fairbanks Begins May 14, 2010
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Frontier Airlines today announced it will begin seasonal summer service to Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) on May 14, 2010. The new nonstop service from Denver International Airport (DIA) will operate four days a week through Sept. 12, 2010, using Airbus A319 aircraft.
“With the addition of our new Fairbanks service to our existing daily summer service to Anchorage, Frontier customers now have the ability to travel to two breathtaking destinations in the great state of Alaska,” said Frontier Vice President of Strategy and Planning, Daniel Shurz. “Combined with Frontier’s great customer service and affordable fares, a summer trip to Alaska will be an unforgettable experience.”
“We are thrilled to have Frontier servicing Fairbanks,” said Deb Hickok, President and CEO of the Fairbanks Convention & Visitors Bureau. “This has been the culmination of many years of collaboration between FAI and FCVB to lure competitive domestic service to our community from a new hub. Having options in air service is critical to the growth of the visitor industry in Interior Alaska. Fairbanksans also will benefit from Frontier’s low-fare options to Denver and beyond.”
Frontier launched seasonal summer service to Anchorage in May 2004.
