Furry folks include Larry the Lynx, Grizwald the Bear, Foxy the Fox and Jack the Rabbit. Larry is a popular guy, because the airline has even named its new feeder service, Lynx, after him. Marine life also flies with Flip the Bottle-nosed Dolphin, and Joe, Jim, Jay and Gary, the Penguins.

    <P>Denver-based Frontier Airlines has placed a firm order for 10 Bombardier Q400s, and options on 10 more, as part of a regional operations review that may also end the carrier’s 12-year relationship with Horizon Air.</P> <P>Frontier’s fleet of turboprops will be operated in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region by an unnamed subsidiary under a new operating certificate, says the airline in a statement.</P> <P>“The subsidiary expects to serve as many as 18 destinations using the new aircraft and to create 300 to 400 new jobs.

    <p>How have Bombardier's CRJ700 and CRJ900 fared in service? Six operators outline their experiences, while the manufacturer explains how it is tackling early niggles</p> <p>When aviation historians wrote up the key developments of the 20th century, the introduction of the Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ) in 1992 was acknowledged as one of the most significant events of the first 100 years of aviation. </p> <p>The revolution created by the original 50-seat CRJ100/200 has been felt across the globe, as its success prompted the creation of a rival family by Embraer and quickly rendered even relatively modern turboprops virtually obsolete in many markets. </p> <p>In the 12 years since that first CRJ entered service, 1,800 regional jets with 50 seats or fewer have been delivered, and the turboprop market has become a shadow of its former self. Canadair, a part of Bombardier since 1986, can rightfully take the credit for creating the "regional jet" phenomenon.</p> <p>The original 50-seat CRJhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Teething-troubles-180521/
  • A new Frontier

    News | 31 May 2003 23:00

    <p>Struggling with a weak fare environment, Frontier is forging ahead with its business plan, adding new aircraft and striving for more gates in Denver </p> <p>There is no doubt that what happens to United Airlines - the primary competitor for Frontier Airlines at its Denver base - will substantially affect future operations for the low-fares carrier. But it is not exactly playing a waiting game.</p> <p>Frontier is already engaged in an ambitious aircraft replacement plan to switch to a new Airbus fleet, equipped with seat-back satellite television. It is also adding new flights, especially to key western destinations such as San Diego and San Francisco, and has in place a new partnership to provide regional jet services to augment the mainline services. Frontier is also moving on the marketing front. This spring it overhauled an already simple fare structure to feature just six sharply reduced, unencumbered fares, and plans a comprehensive new branding campaign.</p> <p>Neverthelesshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/A-new-Frontier-165841/
