Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines has reported a third-quarter operating loss of $9 million, according to data from the federal Bureau of Transportation Statistics.
The results, released Monday, show the loss for the Denver-based airline amounted to 2.6 percent of its total operating revenue. That marks an improvement from 12.2 percent in the second quarter, but is still the second-highest operating loss among the discount carriers.
Only AirTran reported a higher operating loss at $46 million. Southwest Airlines had an operating profit of $86 million.
Among larger carriers, United Airlines posted an operating loss of $469 million.
United, Frontier and Southwest are the top three carriers at Denver International Airport.
