Frontier seeks to raise regional flights18 October 2006
The airline said Tuesday it issued a request for proposal this week to more than 50 communities within 1,200 miles of its Denver hub that want either regional jet or turboprop service.
The Denver-based carrier said last month it was buying 10, 74-seat turboprop aircraft with an option to purchase another 10. Frontier said it will fly the turboprop fleet to underserved markets in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains and serve as many as 18 destinations.
Frontier said the new service will begin in the middle of next year.
