Today only (June 24): Frontier is offering a fare sale for Summer and Fall travel. Fares start at $29 one way!
The sale is valid for bookings made by 11:59 PM ET today (June 24) for domestic, nonstop travel between August 22 and October 20, exclusing Friday and Sunday flights.
Here is the sale page and restrictions. I see $29 fares between:
- Atlanta and Cincinnati
- Atlanta and Indianapolis
- Charlotte and Philadelphia
- Cincinnati and Atlanta
- Cincinnati and Washington-Dulles
There are also many $39, $49, and higher fares, sorted by city, across much of the Frontier route map.
I had no trouble pricing out Charlotte to Philadelphia for $27.50 in September. That’s quite a swipe at US Airways (American Airlines.)
Frontier now follows the ultra-low-cost, fee-for-everything model.
Seat selection costs $4+. They’ll assign you a seat at check in for free, but you’ll probably get the worst one.
Only a personal item is free to bring on board. Checked bags cost $20+ and carry ons cost $30+, so I would think of these fares as costing $20 more each way and plan on checking a bag.
Getting These Flights for Free
There’s no need to actually pay cash for cheap, cash fares. The Citi Prestige® Card comes with a $250 Air Travel Credit every calendar year that will cover the purchase of this ticket. If you haven’t used the credit yet, buy this fare with your Prestige, and you will receive an offsetting credit on your next statement, so you’ll get a completely free ticket. The Air Travel Credit will also offset seat selection, baggage, and food fees.
