View Full Version : Frontier Airlines Looking at Point to Point Ops

Denver Post ran a story today that Frontier is looking to start doing point to point flying, outside of its Denver hub, in low risk markets. Some snips...

"We will continue to focus on developing the Denver hub but will also be pursuing point-to-point opportunities that pose limited financial risk for us," Potter said in an earnings conference call. He did not reveal what cities Frontier may serve.


Separately, Frontier chief financial officer Paul Tate said the April snowstorm that led to canceled and delayed flights cost the airline $546,000 in operating expenses.

These two comments leave plenty of room to interpret. The comment from their CFO Tate clearly states why they are looking the P2P way again, lower risk. This also backs up why they want markets with little threat of competition to keep yeilds high. OKC wise...this could open up opportunities.

Just pray that it snows a lot this winter in Denver! lol! They'd be money ahead moving their hub operations to Oklahoma City. We have more flying days than almost anywhere in the nation.

LOL...they aren't talking about moving away from Denver completely. They are Denver's hometown airline and won't give up the advantages they have there. They are just looking for some additional point to point stuff to do.
