Mayor Lewis Welcomes Frontier Airlines
Gilbert Mayor John Lewis is excited to have a third airline touching down at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. A crowd gathered to welcome Frontier Airlines’ inaugural flight from Denver, Colorado on Thursday, November 15th.
Mayor Lewis was one of the speakers at the welcoming event, describing how the continuous expansion of service will impact the east valley community in a positive way.
“There is a difference between dreaming a dream and living a dream,” he said, “This is another example of living that dream.”
The Frontier Airlines flight is the first to connect directly to an international hub, opening up new opportunities for residents, tourists and business travelers in the Town of Gilbert and surrounding cities.
The Airport Authority is also planning another airport terminal expansion set for completion in 2013. The 16-thousand-square-foot expansion will bring four new gates to the airport, bringing the total to 10.
