Penny fares are back on Frontier. This is as cheap as it gets. Frontier is selling flights for just 1 cent plus taxes on select routes and dates this spring. After taxes and mandatory fees, fares are just $10-$15 one-way or $25-$29 roundtrip. There are also many other routes on sale for under $100 roundtrip.

Frontier even eliminated its online booking fee for these super low fares so this is the absolute lowest price you can get on these flights. Bag fees are extra unless you can travel with just a small backpack.

Travel Availability

The penny fare sale is advertised for travel on scattered dates through June 12, 2019, with a 3-day advanced purchase required. Some of the higher priced routes may have availability through June 19, or beyond.

Seat Assignments

Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.

Alternate Fares

Frontier offers the Works bundle, which can be added to any flight during the initial booking. It includes a standard carry-on bag plus a personal item, one free checked bag, seat selection (including stretch seating), priority boarding, flight flexibility, and refundability. This is a value if you want all of these amenities, but chances are you can get away with just adding what you need a la carte for cheaper.
