Frontier Airlines and business travelers might not be a traditional pairing, but the low-cost carrier has introduced its new BizFare that offers savings and a host of bundled benefits. Frontier is hoping that reduced T&E budgets will make corporate travelers flock onboard.
BizFares will include the following benefits:
- A carry-on bag and personal item
- Board First priority boarding (with guaranteed overhead bin space for carry-on bags)
- Premium extra-legroom seat assignment (subject to availability)
- No change or cancellation fees (fare and options price difference may apply)
- No fee for same-day confirmed flight changes
- No fee for same-day standby flight changes
- FRONTIER Miles members will earn a minimum of 10x FRONTIER Miles for every qualifying dollar spent
Fares start at $129. Frontier says that BizFare is available through the global distribution system (GDS) channel and that travel managers are should contact their travel management company (TMC) or online booking tool (OBT) provider to make sure that Frontier’s BizFare is available to book.
Barry Biffle, CEO of Frontier Airlines, said:
For nearly 30 years, Frontier has made flying easier and more affordable, and we are excited to deliver even more value to business travelers and travel managers with Biz Travel For Less. Our new BizFare is perfect for companies looking to improve their bottom line and save money on business travel. In addition, we believe our new network design will provide more destination options as well as additional frequencies on our most popular routes. Travelers will enjoy the extra legroom and comfort of our Premium seating, as well as the newly enhanced FRONTIER Miles frequent flyer program that makes it easy and fast to attain Elite Status.
We already serve a number of cost-conscious business customers who routinely utilize Frontier for their business travel needs. For companies with a strong focus on keeping travel expenses down, our BizFare is going to be a great new option to integrate into their overall corporate travel mix.”
Anthony’s Take: As company’s look to stretch travel budgets further or cut them, this program makes sense. Business travel is not as glamorous as some believe and if this makes it possible for employees to attend conferences and see customers than it’s good for business.
