Frontier Airlines Expands Service to Canada

Frontier Airlines announced Tuesday that it will launch daily non-stop service between its Denver International Airport (DEN) hub and Vancouver International Airport (YVR) beginning May 5, 2007. Passengers aboard the flight between Denver and Vancouver will fly Frontier's new Airbus A319 aircraft, with 33 inches of legroom as well as 24 channels of DIRECTV service and a choice of three pay-per-view movies in every seatback. Frontier's launch into Vancouver will mark the second Canadian city the airline will serve from its Denver hub. Frontier began service between Denver and Calgary on May 25, 2006, becoming the first American low-cost carrier to serve Canada. Passengers traveling from Vancouver will have connections to 22 Frontier cities throughout the U.S. as well as four of Frontier's eight Mexican destinations -- Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Guadalajara -- in the winter. For passengers traveling from Denver, the new service will commence just in time for the peak cruise season between Vancouver and Alaska.
