Frontier Formally Launches ‘Friends Fly Free’ (Must Join Discount Den For $59.99 & Other Restrictions)
Earlier this year Frontier launched an ongoing promotion called ‘Kids Fly Free‘ where kids under 14 years of age could accompany an adult on a discount den member fare ($59.99 annual cost) for free during certain dates. Since last year Frontier has been offering something similar called ‘Friends Fly Free‘, that program has now been launched and will be offered on a formal basis.
Friends Fly Free won’t always be available and when it is available it won’t be available on all routes/dates but it will be offered on a semi ongoing basis. Under the program when you purchase one round trip discount den fare you’ll get a free one on select dates and routes. At launch the details are as follows:
- Purchase by 5/19/19
- Travel by 6/12/19 or 6/18 – 8/28/19
- Travel is valid Mondays – Thursdays and Saturdays through 6/12/19 and Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6/18 – 8/28/19
- The following blackout dates apply: May 23-25, 27-29, 2019 and Jul. 2-3, 2019. 7 day advance purchase applies
As you can see a lot of restrictions do apply. I personally don’t fly Frontier often enough to justify the $59.99 annual cost, but it shouldn’t take many free flights to recoup that cost. Keep in mind you’ll still pay taxes and fees on these ‘free’ flights.
