Republic Airways unit no longer on Expedia

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Frontier Airlines, a unit of Indianapolis-based Republic Airways Holdings Inc., said Monday that its flights will no longer be available on Expedia.

The Denver-based airline said Monday that a contract with the online travel agency expired this weekend. Expedia says it has removed Frontier flights from select Expedia-brand and Hotwire sites as it negotiates a new contract. The companies didn't disclose details of the negotiations.

Travelers can still find Frontier flights on other websites, but the airline says the best fares are on its own website, FlyFrontier.com.

Frontier has been encouraging travelers to book flights on its own website by offering those customers advance seat assignments, lower fees and more frequent-flier miles.

Frontier says it costs the airline up to $25 per booking when passengers book on other sites.

Republic shares were down 10 cents Tuesday morning, to $9.50 per share.

    All they care is that you read it, you saw the ads, and the ads paid them. It's been a frustrating trend on the web as of late.
  • Republic Headline
    In reading the news note, the header is a mis-leading, as it states Republic is no longer on Expedia, whereas the article defines the change to affect only Frontier, a Republic company. Not a good thing if you are a shareholder with Republic and a disservice to their corporation.

    1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

    2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

    3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

    4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

    5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
