When making a change, customers just have to pay any increase in fare that applies.

The airline’s reimagined frequent flier program, FRONTIER Miles lets members enjoy many benefits as well as attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly and the new program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named, because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. If a customer travels a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.

With nearly 200 new planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America.
