With Frontier Airlines’ Newest Policy, Kids Under 14 Years Old Fly Free!

Frontier Airlines’ New Kids Fly Free Policy

To be eligible for the Kids Fly Free benefit you’ll need to be a Discount Den member, which costs $59.99 per year. 

You’ll get one free kid ticket per adult fare but any changes you make to your reservation will result in the loss of the Kids Fly Free ticket.  Plus, the Kids Fly Free benefit only works on select domestic flights and can’t be combined with any other offers.

Eligible dates will be added each time Frontier extends their schedule.  Currently, the Kid Fly Free benefit is available on these days:

  • February 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27
  • March 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27
  • April 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30
  • May 1, 4, 7, 8, 11, 14, 15, 18, 21, 22, 29
  • June 1, 4, 5, 8, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26
  • July 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30
  • August 5, 6

Is This a Good Deal?

Frontier is a low-cost carrier, so you shouldn’t expect any frills when flying with them.  That said, Frontier’s new Kids Fly Free policy might make me a convert!

I’ve never flown Frontier, but they do operate direct flights from my home airport in Montana to spots like Denver, Palm Springs,  Los Angeles, Knoxville, and more.  And with a recently turned 3-year-old, I will definitely be keeping a closer eye on Frontier’s schedule going forward.

I’m happy to fly a low-cost airline if it’ll save me hundreds of dollars.  And I’m willing to bet some of you would do the same!

What do you think about this new benefit from Frontier Airlines?  My only wish is that all of the other airlines would offer something similar!  Wouldn’t that be nice?

The deal very clearly excludes Thanksgiving travel if you look close. Either way, I appreciate the heads up.

It would be handy if these actually came out the day they were expiring instead of the day after.


You’re right, I’m assuming you got this through the newsletter. We’re working on being able to restrict which posts get sent out in the newsletter. Currently, it’s just all of them, so deals like this get sent out too.

I suggest following us on Twitter or Facebook because these posts will show up immediately after they’re published to the site and you won’t have to miss out.
