Frontier Airlines Introduces On-Line Booking Capabilities for Unaccompanied Minors
DENVER (July 17, 2002) Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today added on-line booking capabilities for unaccompanied minors on its web site at www.frontierairlines.com. Unaccompanied minors are defined as children between the ages of 5 and 11 traveling without a parent, guardian or companion of at least 12 years of age. In the past, customers booking a ticket for an unaccompanied minor had to book the childs flight through Frontiers reservation center or through a professional travel agent, which meant the customer did not always have access to the airlines lowest fares, which are found on www.frontierairlines.com. Now, customers can book Frontiers lowest fares for their child while providing the required drop off and pick up information. Frontier treats the transportation of an unaccompanied child seriously and works as a team, in cooperation with the parent or guardian, to ensure the child is supervised and cared for during the childs entire trip.
We are well into the busy summer travel season and with back-to-school trips just around the corner, we wanted to make sure that traveling with Frontier is affordable and as hassle-free as possible, said Sean Menke, vice president of marketing and planning. In addition, we want all of our customers, including those with special travel needs, to have access to Frontiers lowest fares, which are always available at www.frontierairlines.com.
