The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has reportedly approved Frontier Airlines' application for flag carrier status. The status will allow the airline more international flight flexibility. The airline will be permitted to fly between two international destinations, to Alaska and Hawaii, and beyond its previous limit of two hours from the US border.

Aloha Airlines is offering savings to customers who travel on less popular days. Passengers can purchase travel between the carrier's US mainland destinations and Hawaii for as low as USD199 one-way, or island hop for USD59 one-way if they travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. The special fares must be purchased by 18 November 2003 for travel by 29 February 2004. The sale does not include Vancouver or Aloha Airlines' Central and South Pacific destinations.

On 17 December 2003, Continental Airlines will launch a new daily nonstop flight between Newark, New Jersey and Grand Bahama Island. The new service will be flown by Continental Express using 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft.

American Airlines has joined the Operation Hero Miles programme, initiated by Congressman C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger to allow members of different airline travel awards programmes to donate miles for use by military personnel on leave from Iraq. The airline will provide 10m AAdvantage miles to the programme, while AAdvantage members can also contribute miles to support travel for US soldiers on leave under the Operation Iraqi Freedom Rest and Relaxation programme.

Delta Air Lines has opened its first ever Crown Room Club for customers in Latin America in Santiago, Chile. The Crown Room Club, located in the Arturo Merino International Airport, will offer customers key amenities including toilet and shower facilities, work stations, telephones, a self-service bar and a dedicated staff to provide boarding passes and process future flight arrangements and same-day ticketing. Travellers who visit and join the club before 31 December 2003 can receive 4,000 bonus SkyMiles miles.
