Frontier Airlines Doubles Miles for EarlyReturns Members
DENVER (March 28, 2001) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT ) today announced an even faster way for Frontier's EarlyReturns members to earn free travel. The airline, which introduced its own frequent flyer program, EarlyReturns, on Feb. 1, 2001, is offering double bonus miles for customers who purchase a Frontier connecting ticket and fly through the airline's Denver hub between April 4, 2001 and May 24, 2001.
"With Frontier's new frequent flyer program, EarlyReturns, customers can earn a free trip at just 15,000 miles, or as few as eight roundtrip flights, and with our double mile incentive, earning free travel on Frontier becomes even easier," said Director of E-Commerce and EarlyReturns, Lowell Miller.
For this special promotion, no double mileage bonus will be offered for travel originating or terminating in Denver and the trip must include a connecting stop in Denver. Customers can earn only one double mileage bonus during the promotional period. This bonus is combinable with all other Frontier bonus offers.
EarlyReturns award redemptions include a free round-trip flight anywhere on Frontier's route system at just 15,000 miles. Members earn one mile for every mile flown on Frontier, plus additional mileage with program partners including Continental Airlines, Midwest Express Airlines and Virgin Atlantic Airways, and Alamo, Hertz, National and Payless Car Rental, Kimpton Group Hotels and Citicorp Diners Club Inc. To apply for the program, customers can visit Frontier's Web site at http://www.frontierairlines.com , pick up an EarlyReturns enrollment form at any Frontier airport counter or call Frontier's EarlyReturns Service Center toll-free hotline at 866-26-EARLY or Frontier's reservations at 800-4321-FLY. Member account statements will be sent every three months and members can check their statements on line any time.
