Frontier Bankruptcy Filing Should Not Affect Wyoming Travelers

Laramie, WY – The bankruptcy filing of Denver-based Frontier Airlines should not affect Wyoming travelers, but it depends on whether the air carrier makes changes in service.

Amber Schlabs with the state Aeronautics Division says that's because there's a close connection between Wyoming's main airline and Frontier.

"Great Lakes airlines is a co-chair partner with Frontier and being that Great Lakes serves seven of the ten communities in Wyoming, it could potentially affect things in terms of service in the state," she said.

For example, dealing with baggage is easier because of the partnership between the two airlines.

Right now Frontier says it does not expect the bankruptcy filing to impact its Denver service.
