Polly the Parrot will be the new spokes-animal for Frontier Airlines, which is based in Denver and operates flights in Colorado Springs.

Frontier Airlines hosted a contest on Facebook for input on which animal should be featured on the aircraft’s tail. After two rounds of voting, the wise-cracking parrot won.

“It was a tight race all the way through, but Polly came out ahead with 39 percent of the vote,” said Dan Krause, Frontier’s vice president of marketing and customer experience.  “With nearly 65,000 unique votes cast throughout the campaign, it is clear the public feels strongly about which animal should join our current cast of characters and we look forward to integrating Polly into upcoming campaigns.”
