Frontier Airlines recently added its newest aircraft to its fleet, an Airbus A320 with sharklets. The sharklets, which are eight foot tall wingtip devices, help save fuel and enhance the overall efficiency of the aircraft. The sharklets are expected to save up to four percent, or up to $400,000 per year in fuel burn by reducing drag while also lowering noise emissions and improving take-off performance.
In keeping with the Frontier brand that has a unique animal on each aircraft tail, the new aircraft introduces a new species to the Frontier fleet. “The new aircraft is Frontier’s first with sharklets, so naturally, a shark seemed like a perfect fit,” said Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial. “The tiger shark joins our existing gang of land and marine animals from the destinations we serve.”
