Frontier Not Resume DCA Service?

On October 5, Frontier decided to increase frequency to Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW), Kansas City (MCI), San Francisco (SFO) and Seattle (SEA), effective Nov. 15.

However, still no word about DCA. As you all know, DCA was re-opened with stricter security.

I'm quite surprised that Frontier hasn't said anything about DCA. They have ALWAYS wanted service to the nations capital. BWI just wasn't good enough for them.  Smile

Anyone have any info?

Regards.

Haven't heard anything specific about whether F9 will return to DCA though it seems highly unlikely that they would not resume DEN-DCA when allowed to do so once again. DCA services are being allowed to resume on what appears to be a very limited basis with gradual buildup. I would expect to see F9, along with AS and HP (if the latter survives) serving DCA again under their "beyond (1,250 mi.) perimeter" exemptions by year end.

Im not a betting man but if I was in vegas I would bet against Frontier returning to DCA. I think you won't see any more "beyond 1,250" exemptions because with that distance you are getting into larger amounts of fuel, one of the reasons certain flights were targeted on 9/11 to begin with. I just see the end of the "1,250" flights as being one more security measure that will be implimented at DCA.

Maybe Frontier can work something out at IAD?  Smile

Alaska Airlines plans to re-start SEA-DCA non-stop service when allowed, which is anticipated to be in the not-too-distant future. It has been announced that the route will be flown by 73G equipment in place of the 739 type originally assigned. Alaska launched SEA-IAD non-stop today (10/8) with 73G equipment. The plan is for IAD service to continue in addition to SEA-DCA if/when the latter is able to be resumed.

I thought I read on the internet that Frontier announced would not resume service at DCA, even when it would have been able to. Perhaps if you did a search on press releases at Frontier, you couls find it.If I find where I read that I will post a link.
