Two New Destinations; More Convenient Schedules
MILWAUKEE (July 1, 2010) - Frontier Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: RJET), today announced it will launch two new destinations out of its Milwaukee hub. The new service includes twice-daily nonstop flights between Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) and Hartford’s Bradley International Airport (BDL) beginning Sept. 27, 2010, and four weekly roundtrips to San Antonio International Airport (SAT) beginning Nov. 19, 2010. Fares will be available for purchase on FrontierAirlines.com beginning July 1 for the San Antonio service and July 4 for the Hartford service.
“Frontier Airlines will be the only carrier providing nonstop service between Milwaukee and both Hartford and San Antonio,” said Daniel Shurz, VP of strategy and planning. “With the addition of this service we continue our commitment to providing the state of Wisconsin with more destinations, convenient schedules and affordable air fares.”
In addition to the new destinations, Frontier Airlines is also making a number of adjustments to flight schedules out of Milwaukee on Nov. 19. The carrier will upgrade the aircraft serving several of its popular destinations out of Milwaukee. This will include an upgrade to Airbus A319 service on all Boston (BOS), Washington, D.C. (DCA), and New York (LGA) flights, which were previously served with a combination of Embraer 170 and 190 and Airbus A319 aircraft. The carrier will also upgrade all Milwaukee to Philadelphia (PHL) flights from ERJ 145 to E170 service.
