Again?! Ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier is back with its Friends Fly Free promotion and $19 introductory one-way fares. This latest promo comes less than a week after Frontier offered insanely low $15 one-way fares as part of its new service from Newark International Airport (EWR).

Now until the end of Sunday, Sept. 1, Frontier is offering one-way fares from $19 on select routes. The 2-for-1 fares deal ends October 1. Anyone can take advantage of the $19 one-way fares, however, to receive 2-for-1 fares on qualifying routes you must be a member of Frontier’s discount club, Discount Den. Discount Den is an annual membership that allows members to access the least expensive fares and take advantage of Frontier’s ongoing Kids Fly Free program. An annual Discount Den membership costs $60.

Both the $19 one-way fares and 2-for-1 fares are only available on select routes. $19 fares are available on travel dates beginning October 6, 2019. Additionally, there are a few blackout dates during which neither offer is available. 2-for-1 fares available with the Friends Fly Free promo feature blackout dates that vary by route. Here are the blackout dates during which $19 fares are not available:

  • Nov. 22 — Dec. 2, 2019
  • Dec. 20 — Jan. 6, 2020

If you plan on taking advantage of this promotion, note that Frontier’s fares do not include checked luggage, carry-on bag or seat assignment. The only thing included in fares offered by Frontier is a personal item. All other services and add-ons will only be available for a fee.
