Frontier Airlines outsourcing 1,300 jobs: Denver Business Journal

0

Frontier Airlines will outsource about a third of its total employment base as it works to mold itself into an ultra-low fare airlines, the Denver Business Journal reported.

The company will hire outsourcing companies to handle reservations, ramp work  and other duties in Milwaukee and Denver. About 1,300 jobs are affected.

Frontier has sharply reduced its flight schedule from New Castle County Airport with service to Tampa and Orlando.

It will halt service in the spring and resume flights to at least one Florida destination in the winter.

The airline is working to lower its operating cost to the level of airlines like Spirit and Allegiant. The airline has shifted its focus toward larger cities.

Outsourced jobs typically do not carry the benefits, especially in the heavily unionized airline industry.

It recently returned to Philadelphia International Airport, offering some of the service that had been dropped from New Castle County Airport.
