Frontier's Mexican Fiesta: New Service to Cozumel, Added Service to Its Other Five Mexican Destinations (June 16, 2005)
Sixth Mexican Destination Strengthens Frontier's Position as Denver's #1 Airline to Mexico

DENVER - This spring, Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) became the first U.S. carrier to ask the Department of Transportation (DOT) to fly non-stop, year-round service from Denver to Cozumel, Mexico. With U.S. government approval now in hand, Frontier is ready to welcome passengers to reserve seats on its new service beginning Friday, June 17, 2005. This service commences December 17th, 2005. Frontier will offer three flights each week with operations on Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday.

In addition, Frontier will increase its service to other destinations in Mexico as follows:

Frontier will resume seasonal service to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo on November 19th, 2005, adding an additional weekly flight versus November 2004 for a total of three flights per week.
Frontier will increase service from Denver to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta beginning December 17th, with daily service plus an additional Saturday frequency during peak periods to both destinations.
For the first time Frontier will offer three flights each day to Cancun from Denver during the peak winter holiday periods, effective December 17. This represents a substantial increase in Frontier's Cancun service from Denver and is part of the Company's growing Cancun operation, which includes non-stop service to Cancun from St. Louis, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Nashville and Denver.
"Frontier is proud to be the carrier of choice between Denver and Mexico," said Jeff Potter, President and CEO of Frontier Airlines. "Our new relationship with Apple Vacations, in conjunction with the growing popularity of our unique, non-stop service to Mexico has translated into new customers for Frontier, allowing us to add destinations such as Cozumel and additional flights to the popular resorts we currently serve."

Frontier connects America's premier ski destination to the Caribbean's premier scuba destination
Denver scuba lovers have long sought easy passage to Cozumel, one of the best dive locations in the world. Until this December, Denver passengers' best option to Cozumel is a nonstop Frontier flight to Cancun and a ferry to Mexico's largest island, Cozumel, nestled just 12 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. However, with Frontier's new service, the 28-mile long and ten-mile wide island will be just one flight away. Apart from scuba diving, Cozumel is world renowned for its dazzling white-sand beaches and the remarkable clarity of its multi-hued azure water. Its spectacular beauty has also made Cozumel one of the most visited cruise ports in the world.

To celebrate the new service to Cozumel, Frontier will offer special introductory fares as low as $149* for off-peak travel.

*Service to Cozumel operates on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Off-peak travel is on Tuesdays. Fares are slightly higher other days of the week. Tickets must be booked and paid for by 10:00 p.m. MDT 7/27/05 or within 24 hours (whichever comes first) for travel from 12/17/05 through 03/08/06.

Maximum stay in Mexico is 120 days. Fares do not include Security Surcharges of up to $10 roundtrip, passenger facilities fees of up to $18 roundtrip, the September 11th Security Fee of up to $10 roundtrip, or fees of $3.20 per segment. A segment is defined as one takeoff and one landing. Federal International Air Transportation Taxes of $28.20 roundtrip or foreign departure taxes, customs and immigration fee, airport improvement and health inspection fees and tourism fees combined for up to $70 are not included in this fare.

Seats are limited and certain flights and/or days of travel may be unavailable at these prices, especially during busy travel periods. Tickets are nonrefundable and nontransferable, but may be reissued for a $100 change fee plus any applicable difference in fare. Previously purchased tickets may not be exchanged for these special fare tickets. Fares and schedules are subject to change without notice and other restrictions may apply.

Wonder if these are liveaboard aircraft? Cozumel is rather short of hotel rooms since the hurricane.

Actually Frontier has been around since 1963 - I used to fly them from Denver to Hays, Kansas when living in Denver. There was a few years they closed down or whatever then reopened. It's a great airline.
