The parent company of Frontier Airlines is asking cities up to 1,200 miles away whether "Flip the Dolphin" and "Griswold the Bear" ought to fly to their cities, too.
Denver-based Frontier Airlines Holdings Incorporated says it has its eye on several markets -- but wants as many as 50 cities to spell out how they'd support regional air service, and why they need it.
The proposal invitation is going out to cities within a 1,200 mile radius of Denver.
Frontier is buying ten of Bombardier's 74-seat turboprop planes for $257 million, in order to target mid-size cities.
The service is expected to create up to 400 jobs, and start serving up to 15 markets next summer.
Frontier is the low-cost carrier known for pictures of animals on its planes.
