Frontier Airlines Begins Codeshare Partnership with Midwest Airlines

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Frontier Airlines (OTCBB: FRNTQ) today began a codeshare agreement with Milwaukee-based Midwest Airlines. The agreement will allow customers of both airlines to travel to more destinations while enjoying a seamless ticketing and customer service experience.

The agreement will allow Frontier Airlines to sell tickets under a Frontier code and expand its networks to additional destinations currently served by Midwest. Frontier customers will now be able to reach new cities like Cleveland and Pittsburgh by connecting on Midwest through its Milwaukee hub as well as increased frequencies to current Frontier cites like New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Orlando. Midwest customers will also see an expanded network by connecting on Frontier and Lynx Aviation flights in Denver.

“This is an important step forward as we seek to expand our route map and grow our airline,” said Vice President of Strategy and Planning Daniel M. Shurz. “As we build this partnership with Midwest, our customers will see the benefit with more choices to more cities with an emphasis on the same level of service they have come to expect with both airlines.”

"Under the codeshare, customers of both airlines will be able to go to more places, more often, with seamless connections that will be easy to buy and easy to use," said Gregory D. Aretakis, vice president of Planning and Revenue Management for Midwest. "As our two companies work more closely together, the customers are the winners."

Under the terms of this agreement, both airlines’ customers will also be able to participate in each other’s respective frequent flyer programs – Frontier’s EarlyReturns program and Midwest’s Midwest Miles program, to earn miles and redeem them for free tickets.

Indianapolis-based Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: RJET) expects to close on its purchase of Frontier Airlines on or before October 1, 2009, after which Frontier will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic. Midwest Airlines is already a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic.
