Frontier Airlines Extends Relationship With Barclays and Launches Small Business Credit Card Program Frontier Now Offers Consumers and Small Business Owners Greater Flexibility

and Opportunities to Earn Miles and Other Perks

    WILMINGTON, Del. and DENVER, June 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Frontier
 Airlines (Nasdaq:   FRNT) today announced that it has extended its consumer
 credit card relationship with Barclays (NYSE:   BCS), one of the world's
 largest financial institutions, to offer to its small business customers
 the Frontier Airlines MasterCard BusinessCard.
     Like the consumer version of the credit card, the new BusinessCard
 offers 12,500 bonus miles upon activation, plus one mile for every dollar
 spent on regular purchases and two miles for every dollar spent on Frontier
 Airlines purchases. For a low $49 annual fee, the new BusinessCard offers
 simplified expense management and spend tracking features, and a credit
 line of up to $50,000. The new card also gives business owners the
 flexibility they need to better manage their finances, the ability to
 control employee spending, and the opportunity to award frequent flyer
 miles to employee cardholders.
     Featuring the stars of Frontier's award-winning tail-animal ad
 campaign, Barclays and Frontier offer consumer cardholders a choice of one
 of six Frontier card designs, including its signature Rabbit, Lynx, Fox and
 Bear, as well as the new Penguin and Dolphin designs. Frontier's
 BusinessCard features its popular Wolf design. As an added benefit to
 Frontier cardholders this year, those who make more than $60,000 in
 purchases within 12 credit card statement cycles (January to December
 statements) will automatically be upgraded to "Ascent" status, an elite
 level in Frontier's EarlyReturns program.
     "Frontier Airlines' EarlyReturns is already one of the best loyalty
 programs in the industry, and our Frontier MasterCard has played a
 significant role in expanding our program and delivering even greater value
 and satisfaction to our members," said John Happ, Senior Vice President of
 Marketing and Planning at Frontier Airlines. "Thanks in no small part to
 the great success of our consumer credit card, we're pleased to offer the
 new Frontier Airlines BusinessCard so that our small business customers can
 benefit from Barclays' knowledge, expertise and world-class programs and
 services while earning Frontier miles for the everyday purchases they need
 to help their business grow."
     "Frontier Airlines' decision to expand its four-year relationship with
 Barclays is a strong testament to the quality of our loyalty programs, the
 excellence of our customer service, and our strong commitment to Frontier's
 success," said Chuck Moore, Managing Director, Marketing and Partners at
 Barclays. "With the depth of Barclays' experience and resources behind
 Frontier's consumer and business card offerings, we're able to offer
 cardholders even greater flexibility and more opportunities to earn free
 travel -- making Frontier a more rewarding airline to fly."
