A pretty good whats-going-on article about Frontier's Lynx Aviation in today's Denver Post:

Step-by-Step With the Lynx

Some highlights:


  • The airline's first turboprop plane was promised in May but is now expected in June or July. As a result, its first flights will start around September instead of in July.

  • Lynx now employs about 60. By the end of the year, it plans to employ about 400 and operate about 70 daily flights.

  • [Tom] Nunn also has plans for the company to do contract flying and other work for other carriers, expanding parent company Frontier Airlines Holdings' profile to a broader national operation. That would make Lynx a regional carrier for other airlines, much like SkyWest is for United Airlines' United Express operation.

  • Lynx has approvals to do contract work and is doing ground work for Horizon Air in Tulsa.



It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

Thanks for the update. Too bad they are delayed.

Are F9 still pulling QX capacity? If so, who will make up the shortfalls?

This will be interesting. Wonder if DIA will do what it takes to land this facility.



Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

Republic is replacing Horizon.



It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

I also wonder what they will do to get a Frontier maintenance facility.

Frontier is currently is studying the possibility of building a maintenance hanger somewhere to replace its current maintenance agreement with Continental Airlines.

I do hope that Denver convinces Frontier to build this maintenance hanger here...

It will be nice to see DEN with three maintenance hangers, UA, CO, and F9.

They are slowly withdrawing the capacity, as RC is replacing them route by route. If you look at the route map www.republicairlines.com , you will see that they are growing. At last count, I think they only had 2 E170's flying, but that could have changed since. Those 170's look mighty sexy in F9 colors. I can't wait to see the Q400's!

Quoting NZblue (Thread starter):
The airline's first turboprop plane was promised in May but is now expected in June or July. As a result, its first flights will start around September instead of in July.

So in other words, are they in possession of an aircraft yet? Won't they be doing a few test runs and certifications? I would suspect they either have one, or should be getting a Q400 any day now.
