Fly Frontier Nonstop from Colorado Springs to Orlando and San Diego

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Frontier Airlines, the largest low-cost airline serving Colorado
Springs, today announced the addition of nonstop service to both
Orlando, Fla. (MCO) and San Diego, Calif. (SAN). This brings the number
of nonstop destinations served by the Colorado-based carrier from
Colorado Springs Airport (COS) to seven.

“Colorado Springs in an important part of Frontier’s network and the
response we have seen from customers to the four new routes we start
this weekend has led to our announcement of this new low fare service to
Orlando and San Diego,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice
president, commercial. “With our low-fare flights, Frontier brings a
unique, high-value service to the community, saving customers time and
money, and we look forward to becoming a bigger part of the Colorado
Springs community going forward.”

The news of the two new nonstop destinations comes on the day that
Frontier is celebrating the launch of its new nonstop service from
Colorado Springs to Los Angeles, Calif. (LAX), Phoenix, Ariz. (PHX), and
Seattle, Wash. (SEA) with nonstop service to Portland, Ore. (PDX)
starting this Sunday.

The new nonstop flights enable southern Coloradans to save significant
time and avoid connections getting to these top destinations from
Colorado Springs. Frontier will operate the new routes with 138-seat
Airbus A319 aircraft. Frontier is the only carrier to provide nonstop
flights from southern Colorado to Orlando, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego
and Seattle, and is the only low-fare carrier with nonstop service to
Los Angeles.

“Frontier’s continued commitment to building a focus city in Colorado
Springs is great news for everyone in the Pikes Peak region,” said Mark
Earle, director of aviation, Colorado Springs Airport. “The initial
response to Frontier’s low fares and non-stop service has been
tremendous, and we expect that momentum to continue with the addition of
service to Orlando and San Diego this fall.”

Frontier is celebrating these new destinations with introductory fares
as low as $69* each way, including taxes and fees, to San Diego and as
low as $109* each way, including taxes and fees, to Orlando. For the
first week of sale these flights are only available on FrontierAirlines.com,
where you’ll always find our lowest available fare.

Members of Frontier’s EarlyReturns® frequent
flyer program can earn double miles** for every qualifying flight they
take on the new routes from Colorado Springs through Nov. 15, 2012, for
San Diego and Jan. 5 2013, for Orlando. Pre-registration is required.
