Frontier Airlines is bringing its loyalty program to a new frontier. The budget airline’s loyalty program has changed its name from EarlyReturns to Frontier Miles. The new name members will enjoy many new benefits as well as new, attainable 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.
The big difference that members will notice about Frontier Miles is that it has three tiers of loyalty now. Elite 50k status and Elite 100k status are the two new additions joining the previous program’s Elite 20k status.
Features Of Frontier’s new loyalty program:
- Members with Elite 20k status will enjoy free carry-on bags and advanced seat assignment This tier essentially looks the same as the Elite 20k tier previously offered by the Early Returns program.
- Members with Elite 50k status enjoy access to Frontier’s reclining extra-legroom seat That access extends to a member’s entire family!
- Members with Elite 100 k status enjoy an exclusive bundled package called the Works. This perk provides free carry-on bags, free checked bags, advanced seat assignments and seat upgrades. There is also the perk of free ticket changes and refunds. The Works package extends to a member’s entire family.
Members of Frontier’s updated loyalty program can look forward to earning one status mile for every mile they fly in a year. In addition to earning miles through flights, members can also scoop up miles when they make purchases using the new Frontier Airlines Mastercard®.
The best part about Frontier’s newly updated loyalty program is you can actually earn Elite 20k status for free right now. All travelers who book and complete two round-trip reservations between now and Oct. 15 will be granted 20k status automatically.
