First Frontier Airlines Flight Takes off from Missoula

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - One of the first Frontier Airlines flights from Missoula to Denver took off bright and early Tuesday morning.

Business Development Director at Missoula Economic Partnership Brigitta Miranda-Freer said a low-cost carrier will drive competition and bring down fares in the Missoula marketplace.

She said that benefits customers and helps bring new business into Missoula.

"Anytime businesses don't have to spend money on air fare, they can reinvest it back into the community, that's very important for us," Miranda-Freer said.

Bob Westgate of Frontier Airlines said customers flying out of Missoula can connect through Denver to 30 destinations, including Atlanta, New York and Orlando.

To celebrate the new service from Missoula to Denver, Frontier is offering fares as low as $49 on some flights for the next 48 hours.
