Frontier Airlines Outsourcing; Denver Jobs Intact

Frontier Airlines has announced plans to outsource the jobs of a total of 700 employees nationwide working at all of the carrier’s locations excluding Denver International Airport.

The Colorado-based company reports the cuts are aimed at keeping cost low.

The new round of layoffs will affect gate, ticket counter and ramp employees at 28 locations. According to the Denver Post, about 60 percent of Frontier’s airport stations are currently staffed by employees from other companies.

The layoffs come about a month after Frontier announced it will be canceling all flights from the Colorado Springs Airport to the Denver International Airport because of a reduced fleet of smaller regional jets. The flights will stop in early March.
