(Reuters) – Frontier Group is aiming for a valuation of $4.52 billion in its U.S. initial public offering (IPO), according to a regulatory filing by the low-cost carrier on Tuesday, as the industry prepares for a rebound from pandemic-driven travel lows.

U.S. airlines are beginning to emerge from the pandemic-induced crisis that has opened doors for carriers catering to domestic leisure travel, which is rebounding quicker than business and international travel, particularly as more people receive COVID-19 vaccines.

Budget carriers are also expected to bounce back quicker than larger rivals, thanks to their lower-cost structures and focus on domestic leisure travel.

Frontier, which withdrew listing plans in July, filed again this month, while Apollo Global Management-backed Sun Country Airlines made its successful stock market debut.

Frontier plans to sell 30 million shares priced between $19 and $21 per share, aiming to raise about $630 million.

Denver, Colorado-based Frontier, which is owned by private equity firm Indigo Partners, flies to more than 100 destinations in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean and operates 100-plus Airbus A320 family aircrafts.

Citigroup (NYSE:), Barclays (LON:), Deutsche Bank (DE:) Securities, Morgan Stanley (NYSE:) and Evercore ISI are the lead underwriters for Frontier’s offering.

Frontier will list its stock on the Nasdaq under the symbol “ULCC”.
