Aspen officials worried Frontier will stop service
ASPEN — Officials are worried that Frontier Airlines will stop flying to Aspen.
Local airline liaison Bill Tomcich says the future of Frontier Airlines is tenuous after parent company Republic Airways reported a $15 million loss in the second quarter of this year.
According to the Aspen Daily News, officials are worried after the company said it is trying to sell its four-plane fleet of Bombardier turboprop planes, the only aircraft in Frontier’s fleet equipped to fly into Aspen’s small airport. .
A Frontier spokesman could not be reached for comment.
