Republic Wins Frontier

Republic Airways Holdings won a bid to gain Frontier Airlines. Republic paid $108.75 million for the airlines. Frontier had had another bid from Southwest Airlines worth $170 million but ultimately turned down the offer because of union conflicts. Frontier had filled for Chapter 11 back in April of 2008 and had to be auctioned off.
