DENVER (Nov. 21, 2003) - As our nation looks forward to the Thanksgiving
holiday, Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) provides passengers with a few tips
- and several check-in options - to ensure a smooth and safe holiday travel
First, Frontier recommends that travelers arrive at the airport two hours prior
to scheduled flight departure time. Travelers are also encouraged to visit the
Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) "Traveler & Consumer
Center" site at www.tsatraveltips.us
to learn more about new airport security measures and tips to help travelers
save time and smoothly navigate the security process. In addition, passengers
can access a list of prohibited items, for carry-on and checked luggage, by
going to Frontier's Web site at www.frontierairlines.com/about/checkpoint.asp.
Frontier also offers the following tips for its customers traveling this holiday
- To stay informed of schedule changes or to check the status of any Frontier
flight, customers are encouraged to check real-time flight status on the airline's
web site at http://tracker.flightview.com/htFront/ff.html
or call Frontier's automated flight information line at 1-800-432-1359.
- Eligible customers may skip ticket counter lines by using Frontier's new
FlexCheck online or kiosk based check-in system, which allows passengers to
check in and print a boarding pass, either from a home PC or a convenient
airport kiosk, located at the DIA ticket counter. Learn more about FlexCheck
- Customers, especially those checking ski/snowboard/golf or sporting equipment,
are encouraged to use Frontier's full-service curbside check-in at Denver
International Airport, which is located on the east side of DIA on Levels
5 and 6.
- Customers checking in at Frontier's Denver International Airport hub are
encouraged to access the A Concourse via the sky-bridge on the north side
of the main terminal to avoid potentially crowded trams.
- Ascent and Summit level members of EarlyReturns, Frontier's frequent
flyer program, may use the elite lines at the security checkpoints and ticket
counter at DIA and other airports where the service is available, to expedite
access to the gates.
- Please remember that all carry-on luggage is subject to inspection at all
- All wrapped packages/gifts will be unwrapped and inspected. In order to
keep this process running quickly and efficiently, Frontier Airlines advises
that all passengers abide by the TSA permitted and prohibited items. Customers
can check www.tsa.gov, for
the latest TSA approved items.
- Only ticketed passengers are allowed beyond the security checkpoint. Proper,
government issued identification, such as a state-issued drivers license or
a passport, along with a coordinating boarding pass, will be needed to pass
Frontier wishes all of its passengers a healthy, safe and joyous holiday season.
