SEAT ASSIGNMENTS

Seats may be assigned when booking on FlyFrontier.com or by visiting the My Trips section on FlyFrontier.com for tickets already purchased. Access to advance seat assignments varies depending upon the Fare Option purchased:

  • Classic Plus fares — You’re eligible to select any available seat on the plane at the time of ticket purchase or check-in, including STRETCH seating, if available.
  • Economy fares — You may pay to select your seat assignment at the time of ticket purchase or check-in. If you’ve already purchased your ticket, you may choose your seat assignment in either the My Trips section on FlyFrontier.com or when you check in online within 24 hours of departure.  If you do not purchase a seat assignment, one will be randomly assigned free of charge during check-in. However, your party may be separated.

ITINERARY CHANGES

You may change a Classic Plus ticket provided that you do so prior to the scheduled flight departure time and pay any difference between the fare purchased and the fare for the new flight(s) (no refund will apply if the fare of the new ticket is less).

You may change an Economy ticket provided that (i) you do so prior to the scheduled flight departure time or (ii) you pay any difference between the fare purchased and the fare for the new flight(s) (no refund will apply if the fare of the new ticket is less) plus a fee of $99.

You may make most permitted itinerary changes to tickets using the My Trips link on FlyFrontier.com. The following changes cannot, however, be done at FlyFrontier.com: tickets that include an infant on an adult’s lap and EarlyReturns award tickets that include unaccompanied minors.

You may request a change through Frontier’s Reservations Department or by your travel agent that originally made your reservation. Please note an additional $10 fee per ticket will apply to changes made through our Reservations Department, plus a $25 per ticket external ticket handling charge for tickets not originally issued by Frontier (the latter will not apply if the change is made via your travel agent).

SAME-DAY FLIGHT CHANGES

Frontier offers two options for same day flight changes — standby travel and same day confirmed alternative flight changes.


STANDBY TRAVEL

Frontier offers customers traveling on a Classic Plus ticket, as well as Elite level members of EarlyReturns® traveling on any fare, the opportunity to stand by for an earlier or later flight on your day of travel for no fee. Economy tickets are not eligible for standby travel.

If you are eligible for standby travel, you may request to fly standby on another flight on your day of travel at the airport ticket counter or gate.

Standby travel on eligible tickets must follow the original ticketed itinerary, meaning if you were booked on a nonstop flight you cannot add a connection to the itinerary or vice versa.

Flying standby involves risk. If you are unable to get on the desired flight and miss the flight for which you were scheduled to fly, no additional transportation will be due unless you purchase a ticket. The order in which those standing by for a flight are boarded will be as determined by Frontier.


SAME DAY CONFIRMED FLIGHT CHANGES

If you wish to change to an earlier or later flight on your day of travel, we can confirm a seat for $99 for Economy fares and at no charge for Classic Plus fares, subject to there being seats available on the desired flight. You may confirm a seat on another flight at the airport ticket counter or by calling Frontier Reservations.


SAME DAY FLIGHTS TO ALTERNATIVE AIRPORTS

Same day confirmed alternative flight changes and standby travel on eligible tickets apply to alternative flights between your ticketed origin and destination cities. However, the following groups of airports will be considered the same city for same day confirmed and standby purposes. This means that if you are booked to fly to/from an airport in each group, you may request a same day confirmed alternative flight change or standby travel (if eligible) to fly to/from another airport in the group if there is a seat available by paying the applicable fee.


Washington Dulles (IAD) and Washington National (DCA)

Chicago-Midway Airport (MDW), Chicago-O'Hare Airport (ORD), IL & Milwaukee (MKE), WI

Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) & West Palm Beach (PBI) FL

Los Angeles (LAX) & Orange County/Santa Ana (SNA), CA

Madison (MSN) & Milwaukee (MKE) WI

New York La Guardia (LGA) NY, Trenton (TTN) NJ, & Philadelphia (PHL) PA

Orange County/Santa Ana (SNA) & San Diego (SAN), CA

Orlando (MCO) & Tampa (TPA), FL

Orlando (MCO) & St. Augustine (UST), FL

NAME CHANGES

If you need to change the name on your ticket prior to travel but will keep the same itinerary, you may do so by paying any difference between the fare already paid and the current fare selling for the same itinerary, as well a $75 for Economy fares and at no additional cost for Classic Plus fares. Please note that if you must make an itinerary change (date changes or city changes) in addition to the name change, both the name change cost and the itinerary change cost described above will both apply.

To change the name on a ticket, please call Frontier Reservations at 801-401-9000.

CANCEL A TICKET

VOLUNTARY TICKET CANCELLATION

Except for tickets purchased for travel within 7 days (168 hours) of purchase, you may obtain a full refund for up to 24 hours after the time of purchase. Such cancellations and request for refunds may be obtained using the MyTrips link on FlyFrontier.com or through our Reservations Department at 801-401-9000.If you purchased your ticket through a travel agent or another travel website, you may also request a full refund by contacting your travel agent or travel website.

After 24 hours have passed from the time of ticket purchase or for tickets purchased less than 7 days (168 hours) before the scheduled departure time, rules for canceling a ticket depend upon the fare purchased, and refunds will not be given for Economy tickets. These tickets may be canceled using the My Trips link on FlyFrontier.com or through our Reservations Department at 801-401-9000.

  • Classic Plus fares are fully refundable and may be cancelled at any time before flight departure without a penalty. The value of the ticket or unused portion will be retained for 1 year from the date of issue in the form of an electronic credit that has no cash or refund value and may only be applied to a single subsequent ticket on a Frontier flight for the same passenger as the original ticket, or if requested by the passenger, a refund for the unused portion of the ticket will be provided.
  • Economy fares may be cancelled any time prior to flight departure. The value of the ticket or unused portion, less a fee of $99 (plus $10 if such cancellation is done via Frontier’s Reservations Center) will be retained for 90 days from the date of cancellation of the ticket in the form of an electronic credit that has no cash or refund value and may only be applied to a single subsequent ticket on a Frontier flight for the same passenger as the original ticket scheduled and must be booked within 90 days of the ticket being cancelled. Any optional services purchased (such as bags or seat assignments) are only refundable for cancellations made to reservations booked within the past 24 hours if such reservations were made one week or more prior to your flight’s departure.

Please note that Economy fares must be cancelled prior to the departure of a flight in order to retain their value (less applicable fees). Failure to show for any ticketed flight will result in forfeit of the remaining value of the ticket.

You can use a credit from a cancelled ticket toward the purchase of a new reservation by entering the confirmation code and email address of the cancelled ticket on the payment page of your new booking. Ticket exchanges are one-to-one, meaning that we cannot exchange one ticket for multiple tickets.


INVOLUNTARY TICKET CANCELLATION

Please note that Frontier reserves the right to cancel your reservation (including continuing, connecting and return flights) without notice in the event of any of the following:

  1. You do not fly a flight on the ticket or fail to show for a flight without calling to cancel.
  2. You fail to check-in for your flight by the check-in cutoff. The check-in cutoff is 45 minutes prior to departure for domestic flights and 60 minutes prior to departure for international flights.
  3. You are not present at the boarding gate at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time, even if you have already checked in for the flight.
  4. Frontier’s decision to refuse transport to a customer for any of the reasons stated in Section 3 (Refusal to Transport) of the Frontier Contract of Carriage or as otherwise provided therein.
