Frontier Launches Quick Ascent

Frontier Airlines today announced that it has launched its Quick Ascent
program, which allows “elite” level members of other airline`s frequent
flyer programs to achieve elite or “Ascent” status in Frontier`s frequent
flyer program, EarlyReturns. Normally, a member would be required to fly
15,000 miles to achieve Ascent status, but with the Quick Ascent program,
the 15,000 mile criteria is waived.

Ascent level benefits include:—Complimentary DIRECTV service on Airbus
flights—Priority check-in and boarding—Priority screening lines at
most airports—Preferred seat assignments online—Exclusive Frontier
and partner offers

All EarlyReturns members can earn a free ticket within the U.S. at 15,000
miles, one of the most attractive redemption programs in the industry. In
addition, until the end of February members can fly to Mexico for only
15,000 miles as well (normally 25,000 miles are required for travel to
Mexico). There are no blackout dates for US or Mexico travel.

“We understand the value of repeat customers, and we welcome frequent
flyers from all programs across the industry to join EarlyReturns and
enjoy the industry`s best free ticket redemption program at 15,000 miles
for US and for a limited time, Mexico destinations,” said Sean Menke,
senior vice president of marketing. “As we continue to build our
EarlyReturns program, all of our members can expect additional innovative
offers and partnerships.”
To learn more about the Early Returns program, log on to and earn 1,500 bonus miles
when you enroll online. To take advantage of the “Quick Ascent” offer,
email your Early Returns number and other airline statement showing elite
status for 2003 to [email protected]
