Frontier Airlines to cut flights and jobs at Denver International Airport

Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) is planning to cut the number of flights and jobs at its Denver International Airport hub according to The Denver Post.

CEO Dave Siegel has told employees that increased taxes and landing fees has made the DEN hub unprofitable. In the past year the airline has been adding routes at other locations including Trenton and Cleveland as we have reported.

Siegel sites the 30 percent increase in landing fees over the past three years as the main culprit in making DEN connections unprofitable.

Currently the airline operates 85 daily flights but this will decrease to around 70 in January according to the report.
