Frontier Airlines Brings the Beaches of Mexico to Indianapolis: Warmth is Just $238* Away

DENVER, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ:FRNT) today announced that the beaches of Cancun are on sale from Indianapolis. Non-stop service between Indianapolis and Cancun begins March 6, 2006 with three flights a week, so the opportunity to bask in the sun on Cancun’s world-famous white-sand beaches is just months away. And with introductory fares starting as low as $238* round trip, a dream vacation to the Mayan Riviera can become a reality. However, if you have been day dreaming about the perfect trip to Mexico, it’s time to wake up and make your reservation — the $238* round trip price is only available through 10 PM MST, December 21, 2005 and is valid for travel from March 6, 2006 through August 19, 2006.

With the new flights, Frontier more than doubles the previous scheduled, non-stop service between Indianapolis and Cancun. “Cancun is the top beach destination from Indianapolis, so we know what a great opportunity we have with our new non-stop service from Indianapolis to Cancun,” said John Happ, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Planning. “The Indianapolis community has been tremendously supportive of Frontier, and we can’t think of a better way to repay their generosity than with low fares and the industry’s best service to a premier vacation destination like Cancun.”

Flights between Indianapolis and Cancun will operate three times per week, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Passengers can also fly from Indianapolis via Denver to the beautiful beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Acapulco, and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo.

Passengers on Frontier — to Mexico or any destination coast-to-coast — enjoy unique amenities including new Airbus jets, 24 channels of LiveTV, first-run movies on demand, and Frontier’s generous EarlyReturns frequent flyer program, which allows travelers to earn a free ticket at only 15,000 miles domestically and 25,000 miles to Mexico — the lowest in the aviation industry.
