Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) yesterday (May 14) launched new nonstop service between the carrier’s Denver hub and Fairbanks (FAI); Grand Rapids (GRR) and Long Beach (LGB). The carrier also launched new nonstop service between its Milwaukee hub and Seattle/Tacoma (SEA). The service is part of a 17-market expansion taking place this spring and summer, making Frontier the fastest-growing major carrier in the United States. Services will be operated by Frontier’s Airbus A318s and A319s and Republic Airlines’ Embraer ERJ 190s.
In the coming weeks, Frontier Airlines will launch service between Denver and both New Orleans and Santa Barbara, Calif. The carrier will also launch service from Kansas City, Mo. to New Orleans.

The branded service to Columbus will be provided by 99-seat Embraer ERJ 190 aircraft and service to New Orleans will be provided by 76-seat Embraer ERJ 170 aircraft both operated by Republic Airlines (2nd). Midwest Airlines is no longer an airline, only a brand.
