SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Frontier Airlines has confirmed that it won't be resuming service at the Sioux City airport.

In October the company stopped its Denver service from Sioux Gateway Airport. In a statement Monday, Frontier said it had relied on connecting passengers flowing through Denver, but it now is focused on city-to-city service. The airline says Sioux City doesn't fit into that business strategy.

Sioux Gateway's only carrier is American Airlines, which offers two daily flights to and from O'Hare in Chicago. Airport officials have said they're seeking other airlines to offer Sioux City service.
