Cheyenne, Wyo.-based Great Lakes Aviation has won the right to serve 20 new markets under its recently signed code-share contract with Frontier Airlines. The expanded deal brings to 35 the total number of cities Great Lakes will serve under the Frontier code. Now flying to 16 cities under the Frontier code (eight of which were added November 15), Great Lakes will add a further 20 destinations on December 14. It will discontinue its service from Denver to Hayden, Colo., on December 13.

The new agreement will add Frontier designator codes to Great Lakes flights to cities in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Utah. Great Lakes began operating flights for Frontier in July, some three months after it stripped the United Express livery from its fleet of turboprops. In February Great Lakes and United signed a new three-year marketing agreement that allowed the regional airline to enter into other code-share deals.
