Frontier Airlines – Planes That Cross The North American Frontier
Based out of Denver, Colorado Frontier Airlines launched operations in 1994.It was founded in response to Continental Airlines’ 1993 shutdown of the companies Denver hub. The company was created by former executives of an earlier incarnation of Frontier Airlines that had operated between 1950 and 1986 before going bankrupt.
As a so-called ultra-low-cost airline, their slogan is “Low Fares Done Right.” The company declared bankruptcy in 2008 and was acquired as a subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings. During the acquisition, Republic Airway Holdings was working to acquire MidWest Airlines. This resulted in the two companies, Frontier Airlines and MidWest Airlines to merge in 2011 although no MidWest aircraft was ever operated by Frontier.
In 2013, Republic Airway Holdings was approached by Indigo Partners to sell Frontier Airlines. The deal was finalized in December of the year, and Indigo Partners officially acquired Frontier for $145 million. Indigo contributed to Frontier’s evolution as an ultra-low-cost airline, causing the closure of it’s Denver and Milwaukee hubs.
