Frontier Airlines plans return to normal service

July 22, 2011

Frontier Airlines says it expects to return to normal service including a full schedule on Saturday after repairing planes that were damaged by hail.

A storm last week damaged 18 of Frontier's Airbus aircraft at its hub at Denver International Airport. The airline canceled some flights after taking the damaged planes out of service for repair.

Through Tuesday, Frontier had canceled more than 200 flights since the July 13 storm that caused about 1,000 passengers to be stranded at the Denver airport overnight. Frontier did not immediately return messages Friday seeking an updated number.

The airline, a unit of Indianapolis-based Republic Airways Holdings Inc., said earlier this week that it contracted with charter airlines to operate 36 flights.
