Frontier uses around 39% less fuel when compared to other U.S. carriers due to a unique seating configuration and other weight saving tactics. The carrier currently has over 150 new Airbus A320neo Family aircraft on order and the company’s young and efficient fleet will help it continue to low fares for customers.
