The Wichita city council has approved an agreement that will bring more low airfares to Mid-Continent Airport.
Frontier Airline will launch two daily flights to Denver starting Sept. 22. Tickets go on sale Thursday with a $99 introductory fare on a one-way flight to Denver.
The city promises to pay Frontier half a million dollars if the airline suffers financial losses in the first year. But Mayor Bob Knight says he's convinced Frontier will be successful.
City officials say Frontier and the other discount airline AirTran will save Wichita travelers more than $60 million.
