Frontier Airlines Brings Low Fares to XNA with Non-Stop Flights to Denver

Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines announced the addition of Bentonville, Arkansas as a new city in the Frontier network and the 100th destination Frontier serves from Denver, with non-stop service from Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport to Denver International Airport. To celebrate the new route in Bentonville/Fayetteville, Frontier is rolling back fares and offering a special introductory one-way fare of $38.88* which is available now on

“We are proud to bring our unique brand of Low Fares Done Right to Northwest Arkansas,” said Jonathon Nield, Senior Manager, Network Planning for Frontier Airlines. “We will make air travel more accessible and affordable for everyone in the Bentonville/Fayetteville community, making it easier for people to fly and for people to fly more often.”

Frontier Airlines is committed to families, and what better way to demonstrate that than helping America’s kids fly for free. Children 14 years and younger can now fly free when traveling with an adult through the airline’s Discount Den travel club on qualifying flights. With more than 100 destinations to choose from, Frontier is removing the obstacles for families to travel together whether it’s for a sunny vacation or a visit to grandma’s house. It’s easy to take advantage of Kids Fly Free. And the math is easy, too – one kid can fly free for every adult who books at Simply select a flight on a date that is qualified for Kids Fly Free which is easy to find as it’s marked with a Kids Fly Free logo beneath the Discount Den price. Additional information about Kids Fly Free is available at

“Having Frontier Airlines at Bentonville/Fayetteville is a huge win for our community. Frontier’s presence is sure to positively impact XNA,” said Nelson Peacock, president and CEO of the Northwest Arkansas Council, a non-profit organization focused on improving quality of life in the region. “The Northwest Arkansas Council set a goal of attracting low-cost air service to XNA to create competition, and we’ll be working hard to ensure that people living here prioritize Frontier when making air travel decisions.”

Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKSsm. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees, and priority boarding.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Frontier coming to XNA,” said Blake Woolsey, Chair of the XNA Authority. “Frontier is an airline rooted in a philosophy that ‘travel is for everyone.’ We want leisure and business travelers to benefit from our airport, so this is a new and exciting offering for our region.”

The airline’s frequent flier program, FRONTIER Miles lets members enjoy many benefits as well as attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly, and the program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. If a customer travels a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.

Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry, the Airbus A320 Family of more than 80 jet aircraft. With nearly 200 new planes on order, Frontier will continue to grow to deliver on the mission of providing affordable travel across America. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company will continue to keep fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.

Frontier wants its customers to have more options when they fly and there is no fee for reservation changes made 90 days or more from the travel date. If you need to make a change between 89 and 14 days from departure, the fee is only $49. Changes made 13 days or less from travel cost $119. When making a change, customers just pay any increase in fare that applies.
