Losses at Frontier Airlines doubled, to $12 million, over the latest 1996/7 financial year to March. The three-year-old carrier, based at Denver International, Colorado, hopes that three more Boeing 737-300s, bringing the fleet to 11 by the start of 1998, will help profitability, while talks continue over a possible merger with Western Pacific Airlines. The airline is also pressing ahead with its legal action against alleged predatory pricing by larger airlines at Denver.
