The DOT today issued permission to Frontier's Lynx to start selling tickets. Looks like we should see city announcements in the next week or so.

I was at the supermarket, F9Animal. I checked the DOT before I left an hour ago and - nothing. Now I'm back, I was going to check it again - as soon as I'd caught up here.

But good ol' FATFlyer was ahead of me.

Great news. Thanks, FATFlyer.  Smile

Just got lucky on the timing. I was checking out things in the docket system before a busy weekend started for me.

If everyone had to take a stab at the cities, what would be the first 4 cities you would pick if you were Frontier? Wichita has been well publicized, Billings has been one that has been mentioned in articles as a transition from RJ to Q400 city.

I was under the impression in other threads that Lynx would be an independant operation controlled by Lynx itself, not F9.

It would be cool of Lynx got the IATA airline code L9. That seems to be available. It would suit well with the F9/L9 thing.  Smile

excerpt from the Cedar Rapids Gazette.


New Frontier? Not Yet
by George C. Ford
The Gazette

CEDAR RAPIDS -- A bid to bring a Denver-based low-fare airline to Cedar Rapids will have to wait another year.

Cedar Rapids was one of 50 cities invited in October by Frontier Airlines to submit proposals for air service. The airport was asked to provide a $500,000 revenue guarantee to be considered by Frontier as a potential destination.

The revenue guarantee would be held in reserve until Frontier completed its first year of service. If the airline did not achieve its required revenue to operate in the market, the $500,000 would be tapped to make up the deficit.

The Cedar Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce co-ordinated pledges from local companies to compile more than $330,000 of the $500,000 revenue guarantee.

Chamber President Lee Clancey said the entire $500,000 was guaranteed by the Chamber.

"We called on companies that spend a lot of their revenue on travel and were willing to make a pledge against the revenue guarantee," Clancey said. "The Chamber was willing to make additional calls to backfill the revenue guarantee."

Airport Director Dan Mann said the $500,000 revenue guarantee enabled the airport to compete for Frontier service. He said the airline is still considering Cedar Rapids but initially will extend service to airports in larger communities in the eastern United States.

"Frontier has had to scale back its rollout of new destinations due to slower delivery of the regional jets they plan to use for the new routes," Mann said. "In some cases, Frontier has been able to initiate service with Bombardier Q-400 turboprop aircraft, but the range of those aircraft do not make them appropriate for this market. Regional jets are a more appropriate aircraft for this market."

Mann said Frontier is expected to consider Cedar Rapids next spring as it puts more regional jets into service. The jets will be operated by Republic Airlines under a code-share agreement with Frontier.
