Indigo Partners today issued the following statement on the status of its
pending acquisition of Frontier Airlines from Republic Airways Holdings:

“Indigo Partners has informed Republic Airways that its planned acquisition of
Frontier Airlines will move forward. Major conditions, including agreements
with FAPAInvest and Barclaycard are satisfied, as are other commercial and
business arrangements. An agreement has not been reached with the Association
of Flight Attendants (AFA); however, Indigo has informed Republic that it will
waive that condition. The transaction is expected to be finalized later this
month, subject to receipt of certain regulatory approvals and other customary
closing conditions.”

William A. Franke, managing partner at Indigo Partners said, “We are pleased
about the progress we have made to resolve major issues and move this
acquisition toward closing. We look forward to completing the transaction and
