An American ultra low-cost Carrier, Frontier airlines yesterday, July 29, received delivery of it’s number 100 Airbus A320neo aircraft, painted with a distinct “Chinook the Gray Wolf Livery.”
Frontier CEO, Barry Biffile, in a press release said “taking delivery of the 100th Airbus aircraft in our fleet marks a tremendous milestone for our company, we have significantly expanded our fleet in recent years as Frontier has continued to grow both domestically and internationally.”
Frontier order book with Airbus is staggering with another 88 A320, 30 A321neos and 18 A32XLRS. Set to be delivered in the next half decade.
Airbus CEO C. Jeffrey Knittel, also expressed gratitude, “Airbus is pleased to reach this significant 100th aircraft milestone with Frontier Airlines, and to be a part of the airline’s continuing growth and success,” “With 160 more aircraft on order, we look forward to many more of these milestones.”
This 100th aircraft has a livery of a famous wolf called Chinook. Chinook was a wolf-dog hybrid set to be put down in 1993 for fear of her wolf genes, but she was saved at the last minute. Rescuing this animal had far-reaching consequences, such as dismantling the dangerous label of wolf-dogs and creating the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, hence why she deserves her spot on the tail.
