Frontier Airlines marked a significant fleet milestone with the retirement of its last Airbus A319 aircraft – tail N949FR – delivered to the company in 2006. The phase-out of the A319 is part of a fleet modernization plan by Frontier Airlines that includes a strong focus on operating newer, more fuel-efficient aircraft.
The final A319 tail featuring Erma the Ermine flew with Frontier for more than 15 years. The A319-model aircraft, which the company first began flying in 2001, played a vital role in Frontier’s success for more than 20 years, providing efficient, safe and reliable service, including during the airline’s transition to an ultra-low-cost carrier.
Frontier operates one of the youngest and most fuel-efficient fleets of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft with an average age of only 4.1 years, including the largest A320neo fleet in North America. Moreover, with approximately 140 aircraft currently on order, Frontier’s modern fleet will continue to grow in the coming years, a testament to the company’s overall commitment to more sustainable, reliable and affordable flying.Email Post to a Friend
