FAA Proposes $380,000 Civil Penalty Against Frontier Airlines
SEATTLE – The Federal Aviation Administration has proposed to assess a $380,000 civil penalty against Frontier Airlines of Denver for operating several aircraft on approximately 900 flights when they were not in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations.
The FAA alleges that in 2008 and 2009, Frontier reconfigured the passenger cabins on some of its Airbus A-318s and -319s, to permit dual-aisle access to the overwing emergency exits. However, the airline did not replace the existing placards with placards showing the new configuration, as required. The placards are in place to tell passengers how to operate the overwing exits. Frontier then operated these aircraft with the wrong placards in place.
The airline has 30 days from the receipt of the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
