Frontier pilots ratify agreement to 2011
Members of the Frontier Airline Pilots Association (FAPA) have ratified a long-term labour agreement with the airline. The deal will extend certain wage and benefit concessions through to December 2011. Nearly 85% of votes cast were in favour of ratification.
"Our pilots once again have demonstrated their willingness to help Frontier's leadership move our airline toward sustainability and growth," said Frontier president and CEO Sean Menke. "This agreement is important because now 100% of our workers have made wage and benefit concessions, a factor that will prove critical in attracting exit financing for our emergence from bankruptcy."
"The leadership of the Frontier Airline Pilots Association and its members understand the challenges Frontier is facing and appreciate the joint effort made in reaching this agreement," said FAPA president John Stemmler. "This agreement is a clear demonstration of our commitment to Frontier and our belief in its long-term success."
The Frontier Airline Pilots Association represents more than 600 pilots at Frontier.
