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.
