DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Frontier Airlines has been named “North America’s Leading Low-Cost Airline” by World Travel Awards, the travel industry awards program that has been described by the Wall Street Journal as the “Oscars of the Travel Industry.”

“This award is a tribute to the more than 5,000 aviation professionals whose work made the honor possible.”

More than 213,000 travel industry professionals from 160 countries participated in the World Travel Awards voting program. This year’s award mirrors two awards the airline received from the World Travel Awards in 2010, when Frontier was named the “World’s Leading Low-Cost Airline” and “North America’s Leading Low-Cost Airline.”

“Travelers can rely on Frontier Airlines for affordable fares all year long. We’ve worked tirelessly every day for more than 18 years to provide our customers with an affordable, enjoyable, comfortable and safe experience – representing our trademark better and different experience,” said Peter Kowalchuk, director of Corporate Communications at Frontier Airlines. “This award is a tribute to the more than 5,000 aviation professionals whose work made the honor possible.”

This past October, Frontier launched a newly renovated website showcasing their affordable fares and a new calendar shopping feature that makes it easier than ever to find the cheapest days to fly. With user-friendly navigation, travelers are provided the opportunity to compare fares to select the most affordable flight.

Since its inception, Frontier Airlines has grown to more than 5,000 aviation professionals operating from hubs at Denver International Airport, Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport and Kansas City International Airport. Currently in its 18th year, Frontier offers service to more than 75 destinations in the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica.
