Frontier Airlines takes delivery of its first A320neo

The first Airbus A320neo for Frontier Airlines is delivered

Frontier Airlines, headquarters in Denver, Colorado (U.S.), took delivery on October 19, 2016 of its first Airbus A320neo. Frontier is the first U.S. airline to receive an A320neo with CFM engines, and the aircraft is the first of 80 A320neo Family aircraft the low-cost carrier has ordered. All of Frontier’s A320neo Family aircraft will be powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines.

Each of the Frontier’s A320neo Family aircraft will feature lightweight composite Sharklets, 2.4-meter/94-inch tall wing-tip devices and new CFM’s LEAP-1A engines providing operators with double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – with a 15 percent reduction upon entry into service.

In addition to the A320neo delivered today, Frontier currently operates a fleet of 64 Airbus aircraft, including 30 A319s, 24 A320s and 10 A321s. Their current backlog of Airbus aircraft is comprised of 18 A319neo, 2 A320ceo, 61 A320neo and 6 A321ceo.

Frontier took delivery of its first Airbus aircraft in 2001 and has since transformed into an all-Airbus, all-A320 Family fleet, allowing the airline to optimize efficiency and economy by streamlining crew training and maintenance operations. The A320 Family also offers the most comfortable single-aisle cabin in the sky at a full seven inches wider than competing aircraft allowing for 18”-wide seats in comfort economy as standard.

Frontier launches career pilot program with Great Lakes Airlines and Silver Airways

Frontier launches career pilot program with Great Lakes Airlines and Silver Airways

Frontier Airlines has entered into pilot hiring partnerships with both Cheyenne, Wyoming-based Great Lakes Airlines and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood-based Silver Airways as part of the Frontier Career Pilot Program, designed to remove many of the career uncertainties that pilots face as they begin their airline careers by guaranteeing pilots entering the Career Pilot Program a first officer position with Frontier upon completion of defined experience requirements.

Frontier plans to launch the Frontier Career Pilot Program this month.

Frontier will work with its new partners by recruiting and interviewing new pilot candidates for this new program.

Frontier will help its new partners interview and recruit new pilot candidates. Once selected, the pilot needs to remain employed by the regional airline, upgrade to captain and build at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time. Once these and other conditions are met such as dependability metrics and a letter of recommendation from the partner airline, Frontier will guarantee that the pilot will transition to Frontier as a first officer.

Pilots who currently fly for Great Lakes Airlines or Silver Airways also will be eligible and encouraged to participate in the Career Pilot Program. Depending on staffing needs at the regional airlines.
