Frontier Flying West
Frontier Airlines announced that it will move its headquarters from Connecticut to Dallas, as reported by WFSB.
“It’s official. Dallas is now home base for Building Gigabit America,” said Frontier’s CEO Nick Jeffery. “Moving our headquarters to Dallas makes good business sense given the city is already home to hundreds of our corporate employees and sits in the middle of one of our most important fiber markets. With a fast-growing economy and large, diverse pool of talent, Dallas is quickly becoming one of the nation’s top business cities. We’re proud to be part of it.”
The company said there were other benefits to the move, according to the article:
- The relocation is projected to boost the local and state economy by $3.8 billion and secure more than 3,000 jobs in the Dallas area over the next 10 years.
- New high-tech Dallas office creates high-performing environment for top talent and executive leadership team.
- Tech leadership will drive innovation agenda from Dallas as Frontier transforms into a growing tech company.
- Expansion of fiber network to hundreds of thousands across Texas meets the growing demand for high-speed connectivity and positions the state to compete and lead for years to come.
The article also said that “as part of its headquarters relocation, the company is investing in a new 95,000-square-foot office space – dubbed the GigaHub – in Uptown Dallas. Its innovative Dallas hub, which is home to the company’s CEO, executive leadership team and hundreds of corporate employees, was designed to create a high-performing culture for top talent to lead its transformation.”
