Frontier Airlines Welcomes City Council Approval of its Hangar Lease Extension with Denver International Airport
DENVER. May 29, 2019 – Low-fare carrier, Frontier Airlines welcomes the recent approval by Denver City Council of its ten-year hangar lease extension with Denver International Airport (DEN). This lease extension underscores the Frontier’s mission to deliver Low Fares Done Right to the community.
“We are delighted to finalize a ten-year fixed term extension to our hangar agreement at Denver International Airport,” said Trevor Stedke, Senior Vice President of Operations for Frontier Airlines. “Last month we announced Frontier’s 100th non-stop destination from DEN, highlighting the remarkable growth in air service, affordable fares and economic benefit we contribute to the Denver area.”
Frontier’s 155,000 square foot hangar at DEN has served as the airline’s primary maintenance facility since it began occupying the space in 2014.
“For 25 years, Frontier has been an important partner in DEN’s growth,” said DEN CFO Gisela Shanahan. “Their continued investment in Denver is welcome and is a reflection of the airport’s commitment to provide a cost-efficient operating environment for our airlines. We look forward to many more years of a strong partnership with Frontier.”
The new agreement will allow Frontier and DEN to work together on future upgrade projects that will improve its operation at the airport.
