Frontier Airlines Announces That it Will Match the Status for Customers of All Major U.S. Airlines

DENVER. Nov. 17, 2020 – Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines today announces that, for a limited time, it will offer status upgrades to those who have earned status at any U.S. airline and the benefit will last through Dec. 31, 2021. Current status-holders with other airlines are eligible to receive equivalent status with FRONTIER Miles which offers benefits such as complimentary seat selections and carry-on baggage. Offer is only available through Dec. 1 at www.FrontierStatusMatch.com.

“Frontier’s frequent flyer program, FRONTIER Miles, offers incredible value for travelers and we’re thrilled to invite current status holders of other airlines to join us and discover all the benefits Elite status Frontier offers,” said Tyri Squyres, vice president of marketing, Frontier Airlines. “A complimentary seat selection and carry-on are just the beginning of the benefits you'll enjoy. We make it easier for you to achieve status with rewards for both you and your whole family.”

Frontier’s Status Match program requires verification of a frequent flyer’s current status with another airline. And it’s easy, just visit www.FrontierStatusMatch.com for the full details and to apply. Status verification is $49, and you will also need to sign up for the FRONTIER Miles program, which is free to join.

FRONTIER Miles offers three Elite status tiers – Elite 20k, Elite 50k and Elite 100k. All Elite members enjoy access to Family Pooling which makes all their miles more useable. At the first tier – Elite 20k, customers enjoy benefits like free carry-ons and seat assignments. At the new second tier – Elite 50k – additional benefits include upgraded seating for the whole family. At the highest tier – Elite 100k – customers receive both status and The WORKS for the whole family – this includes access to the best seats onboard, checked bag, carry-on bag, full refundability and no change fees.


Frontier is on a mission to make family travel better and the program’s Family Pooling benefit is a way for a group of up to eight people to share their FRONTIER Miles. And because all families are not the same, we leave it to the customer to define their family in the program. Unique to Frontier, there are no minimums or hidden fees associated with Frontier’s family pooling. Customers can access the benefits of family pooling in two ways: either by earning Elite status or becoming a FRONTIER Airlines World Mastercard® card holder.


Frontier is the first U.S. airline where, for every dollar spent, card members receive one Qualifying Mile toward Elite Status. The card program offers even more ways to earn miles with the dynamic 5-3-1 earning structure: for every dollar spent, card members earn five times the miles on purchases at flyfrontier.com; three times the miles on restaurant purchases; and one mile on all other purchases. New card members earn 40,000 bonus miles after spending $500 on purchases in the first 90 days and paying the $79 annual fee. And cardholders who spend $2500 on the card in a year receive a $100 Frontier voucher on each anniversary of their card membership
