Frontier Airlines Holdings says a certification process for its Lynx Aviation subsidiary has been delayed postponing the October first launch of the operation.
The Federal Aviation Administration must complete the process before any airline can begin service. Frontier Airlines didn't provide a new timetable.
Frontier Holdings is the holding company for Frontier Airlines which is based in Denver.
The company earlier announced it would start Lynx service to Wichita, Kansas, Rapid City, South Dakota, Albuquerque, New Mexico and Billings, Montana. It now will work with Republic Airways, Horizon Air and Frontier Airlines to fly those routes instead.
Frontier estimated Lynx Aviation expenses will be $8 million for the quarter ending December 31st.
