Frontier Airlines announced it will end its service from Pittsburgh to Denver just one month after it started offering the flight.

Officials from Frontier Airlines and the Pittsburgh International Airport said the airline would discontinue flights to Denver in January on a seasonal basis, although the flights were not billed as seasonal when they began in June.

"It's more part of their seasonal adjustment," said airport spokesman Bob Kerlik. "It doesn't mean they're not coming back in the spring."

Frontier officials said they will review the performance of the Pittsburgh-to-Denver flight in the spring to determine whether they’ll bring it back when the weather gets warmer.

They said they’ll also review whether to bring back service from Pittsburgh to Atlanta and Chicago after those flights stop in October. Frontier is also cutting service to Denver at ten other airports. The airline anticipates no change to flights from Pittsburgh to Orlando and Las Vegas.

Airport officials anticipated possible adjustments, Kerlik said.

"They've talked about expanding service [next summer]," he said. "They're doing quite well."

Kerlik said other airlines will continue offering daily nonstop service from Pittsburgh to Atlanta, Chicago and Denver.
