On Monday, August 5th, N803FR operated a six minute hop from Phoenix Sky Harbor International to Phoenix Goodyear Airport, capping Frontier's use of the "Baby Bus". The carrier was the first to operate the A318, in July 2003, and the only US airline to purchase the type.

Following the lead of other US carriers, Frontier Airlines received their first Airbus A320 equipped with Sharklets in mid-July. The aircraft, N220FR, features an appropriate tiger shark animal tail and the carrier's updated color scheme.
