Frontier to Close Las Cruces Reservations Operation

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In an effort to optimize operations in advance of its emergence from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection, Frontier Airlines Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: FRNTQ) announced today that it will close its Las Cruces, New Mexico, reservations operation.

All current Las Cruces employees will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at other locations within the Company. Frontier will provide moving assistance for employees who elect to relocate. Employees who choose not to move to another Frontier location and are eligible will receive severance pay.

“We hope all of our team members will join us in our other locations,” said Frontier Chief Operating Officer Chris Collins. “This move will eliminate an operational duplication that exists with our Midwest Airlines partnership. We understand the difficult nature of this decision and its impact on our employees. We need our people, and we will do what we can to make the transition as easy for them as possible.”

The Las Cruces Reservations Center is expected to cease operations by the end of 2009.

Frontier will emerge from bankruptcy on Oct. 1, 2009, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: RJET). Midwest Airlines is also a Republic subsidiary. Frontier and Midwest recently announced a codeshare agreement between the two carriers.
