Apr 27, 2001, 01:00 ET from Frontier Airlines

    DENVER, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) has
 teamed up with the March of Dimes in its mission to improve the health of
 babies by preventing birth defects, low birth weight, prematurity and infant
 mortality.  Airline employees have raised money through a variety of
 company-sponsored activities and will culminate the campaign with the March of
 Dimes largest fundraising event of the year, WalkAmerica, being held Sat.,
 April 28, 2001.  Employee walkers and other volunteers on Frontier's behalf
 have collected sponsorships for the walk and Frontier will match all employee
 contributions to the March of Dimes campaign dollar for dollar.
     WalkAmerica is the conclusion of many employee fundraising efforts for the
 March of Dimes including:
 
     -- Purchasing paper tennis shoes, supplied by the March of Dimes, which
        were displayed at Denver International Airport and the airline's
        headquarters.
     -- Donating to the cause through a model aircraft raffle.
     -- Participating in lunchtime fundraisers, such as pizza parties and "Be a
        Hero Day" where employees purchase a March of Dimes "Be a Hero" sticker
        and receive a free hero sandwich.
     -- Donating to "Blue jeans for Babies" days, where flight attendants wore
        blue jeans with their airline uniforms.
 
     "As Frontier continues its successful and profitable growth plan, it is
 only fitting that we extend our success in the communities we serve,"
 explained Vice President, Communications Elise Eberwein.  "Perhaps more
 meaningful than Frontier's monetary donation to the March of Dimes 2001
 campaign is the participation of nearly 500 employees over the past four
 months as we've prepared for WalkAmerica.  Frontier's community relations
 strategy focuses primarily on employee involvement and we are delighted that
 so many of Frontier's employees have chosen to give their time to this very
 worthy cause."
     "Thanks to the contributions of individuals and companies like Frontier,
 last year WalkAmerica, which is held in 1,400 communities in all 50 states,
 raised $88.5 million," said Chief Financial Officer of the Children's Hospital
 in Denver and Chairman of WalkAmerica Len Dryer.  "Together, we are truly
 making a difference for American babies."
 
     Denver-based Frontier Airlines serves 22 cities coast to coast with a
 fleet of 25 Boeing 737 jets and employs approximately 2,400 aviation
 professionals.  The airline is the second largest jet service carrier of
 Denver International Airport with an average of 112 daily systemwide
 departures and arrivals.  Zagat's Airline Survey recently ranked Frontier
 Airlines as one of the top ten domestic air carriers based on comfort, service
 and food.  In 1999 and 2000, Frontier's maintenance and engineering department
 received the Federal Aviation Administration's highest award, the Diamond
 Certificate of Excellence, with 100 percent of its maintenance and engineering
 employees completing advanced aircraft maintenance training programs.
