Denver-based Frontier Airlines says it hopes to launch a long-awaited turboprop operation called Lynx Aviation to serve small and mid-sized cities in the West by mid-December.

All Frontier needs is certification from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The carrier had hoped to start Lynx Aviation in October, but that was delayed pending FAA approval.

Frontier began flying three Lynx routes -- to Wichita, Kansas; Rapid City, South Dakota; and Sioux City, Iowa -- with aircraft from its regional partners.

The new operation will use 74-seat turboprop planes from Bombardier Incorporated.

Frontier serves cities in 32 states, Mexico and Canada from its Denver International Airport hub.
