Frontier Airlines is out of bankruptcy protection and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings Inc.
The Denver-based carrier field for bankruptcy protection in April 2008. It has reduced its routes since then and has been turning an operating profit for the past several months.
Nearly all of Frontier's flights come or go from Denver. That's a competitive market, where Frontier is up against much larger United Airlines as well as discounter Southwest Airlines Co.
