DENVER -- April 09, 2013

Frontier Airlines today announced the appointment of Holly Nelson as chief
accounting officer and treasurer of the Denver-based carrier.

A seasoned professional, Nelson brings more than 25 years of airline-industry
financial experience to the position. Most recently, she served as chief
financial officer for Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP), where she led the
company’s finance and human resource functions and was responsible for all
accounting and reporting, treasury, financial planning and corporate
governance for the company.

Prior to joining ATP, Nelson worked at Virgin America Inc., where she served
as senior vice president and chief financial officer. During her tenure, she
re-established Virgin America in the financial markets to facilitate capacity
growth of 89 percent over two years, executed a fleet plan to support the
airline’s growth and led negotiations for the purchase of 60 new aircraft.
Holly previously served as senior vice president, controller and chief
accounting officer at JetBlue Airways Corporation where she helped the airline
enter the public markets and guide its tremendous growth.

Nelson is a certified public accountant and holds a bachelor of business
administration degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Holly is a
past member of the Accounting Standards Executive Committee (AcSEC) which is
the senior technical committee at the America Institute of Certified Public
Accountants (AICPA) and she was on the Airline Guide Task Force that issued
the updated AICPA Audit & Accounting Guide on Airlines.

“Frontier is exceptionally fortunate to be able to attract an officer of
Holly’s caliber,” said Robert Ashcroft, senior vice president of finance. “Her
arrival at Frontier could not be more timely, as the company moves towards
separation from its corporate parent and continues to shift towards becoming
an ultra low-cost carrier.”
