From article: "About 150 Frontier Airlines mechanics' jobs will be moved to Milwaukee, the future site of a heavy-maintenance facility that will serve Frontier, Midwest and Republic planes."
Not surprising but disappointing.
Didn't Denver also lose out on a UA heavy MX facility a few years back? Something to do with a tax on a/c parts? Also, where does Republic do all their heavy MX now? IND?

Quoting PlaneAdmirer (Reply 2): Well done City of Denver and Colorado now there is no tax revenue instead of some tax revenue.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a bingo.
I don't know why so many cities think that it's the responsibility of local (hurting) businesses to pay their bills, but once in a while, something like this happens.
When it's more sensible for a business to pack up and leave town than it is to stay, you have FAILED as a civic leader.

Quoting Mariner (Reply 4): They seem to forget their own incentive package was short on one thing - incentives:
And Bedford writes off the support he received from the city of LDenver & surrounding areas while wooing them to support him during bankrupcty. I do hope the post spins and spins this to United and Southwest advantage. The hometowners are now leaving with the jobs.

The hometown airline has grown up and moved out.

When are cities going to realize that as much as they would like to think so, business do not and cannot have any inherent loyalty to their city? It is all about dollars and cents. Incentives buy loyalty.
