Late-Breaking Program News Frontier Airlines and AirTran Airways Enter Unique Marketing Partnership
(Posted: Nov 13, 2006)

Effective Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2006, Frontier will begin two new, innovative marketing programs with AirTran Airways:

- A marketing/reservation referral program
- A frequent flyer benefits exchange

This new alliance is designed to give each airline a presence and exposure in markets not currently served.

- Passengers can earn AirTran Airways A+ Rewards credits on Frontier flights or Frontier miles on AirTran flights; credits/miles are only earned for one program
- AirTran Airways A+ Rewards Elite members get additional benefits when traveling on Frontier upon presentation of their Elite card (i.e., priority check-in, free DirecTV, etc)
