Frontier cancels more flights after Denver storm
DENVER (AP) — Frontier Airlines has announced more flight cancellations through Monday after hail at Denver International Airport took almost a third of its Airbus fleet out of service.
The Denver-based carrier says it's cancelling a total of 96 flights Saturday, Sunday and Monday, on top of more than 100 flights that had been scheduled to leave Thursday and Friday.
Eighteen of the carrier's 59 Airbus planes plus two turboprops were damaged by hail Wednesday night. Five have returned to service, but the rest are still being repaired.
Frontier says it is working to fly customers on other airlines or aircraft and has also entered short-term leases of other airlines' planes.
