Do you think its possible that Frontier is planning some expansion to some Northern points for next year? I have heard that with the Spring or Summer schedule Frontier maybe planning to try some Maple Syrup or the Land of the Midnight Sun.

There's no reason why they shouldn't. They already serve 3 destinations in Mexico and are adding two more. Adding flights to Canada makes sense, but I imagine they may want to add some more domestic routes, first. BOS is noticecably absent from their route map, and other cities are presently under-served (How many flights to LGA? Just two, I thought.).

But in general, there's no reason why they couldn't partner with some carrier up there to feed into their route system. For example, they could fly to Winnepeg (sp?) and have WestJet route passengers there for F9 to pick up to transport to the US.

Just as a note... WestJet is starting charters to Miami (I do believe they have done some last year), and are also looking at scheds to the US. I know they might consider a codeshare with another lowcost... YYC - DEN is a popular route...I guess time will tell.

Actually the city I heard is a bit farther west than YYC and would
tie into cruise traffic. But a link-up with West Jet would be interesting
as both carriers could tap into huge new markets without a lot of
capitalization costs. Like you say, time will tell...

Of course, both carriers could offer service to the other airline's main cit(y/ies). It doesn't have to be F9 flying to Canada or WestJet flying to the US alone. However, since F9 is already flying to Mexico on a regular basis, I would they have more potential for route approval.

Then again, I'm not sure how routes are administered on international flights between the US and Canada.

Hopefully Frontier would choose Calgary because of Westjets huge presence here. Possibly when they open the new passage from D concorse to customs (if its not already open) Then Frontier could even share gates with Westjet. Also there is quite a large number ofregular bussiness passangers between Calagary and Denver.

WestJet doesn't own any of the gates on the "D" Pier which can be used for inbound international flights - meaning, those gates with the passages to Canada Customs; gates 42, 43 and 44. All of those gates are owned by the Calgary Airport Authority.

The widening of the "D" concourse was held up because of funding problems (rumoured to be because AC was not paying its rent to the CAA, to the tune of a few $M).... but in any case, the "D" concourse is progressing steadily. Those gates are rumoured to be slated for transborder use; however, the prior owner of the gates on the "D" concourse was AC.... they inherited those gates from Canadian Airlines.

As for YYC service to DEN.... well, it looks like AC and UA already have that market sewn up out of YYC - they do at least a 2x daily between the two cities.
