Frontier Airlines Announces New Pet Fare For In Cabin Travel

Shane Nolan

May 13, 2010 - Frontier Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. announced on Wednesday that customers can now travel with their small, furry friends in the cabin of the aircraft for a $75 each-way pet fare. 

The new in-cabin pet policy applies to small dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters or small household birds. All pets must fit into a carrier that fits under the airplane seat and they must have proper health documentation in order to fly. 

“We have spent a lot of time listening to our customers and determining what would make their travel experience even better,” said Ian Arthur, vice president of marketing and branding. “We received a lot of feedback on our pet policy and determined that pets would be a welcome addition to the Frontier travel experience.”


In addition to allowing small pets in the cabin, Frontier also accommodates larger pets as checked baggage. Pets weighing more than 20 pounds, who do not fit the pets-in-cabin requirements, may be checked for a $150 fee.

Frontier Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc., an airline holding company that owns Chautauqua Airlines, Lynx Aviation, Midwest Airlines, Republic Airlines and Shuttle America. Currently in its 16th year of operations, Frontier employs more than 5,500 aviation professionals and operates more than 550 daily flights from its three hubs at Denver International Airport, Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport and Kansas City International Airport. Frontier offers routes to more than 70 destinations in the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica.

On April 13, 2010, Republic Airways announced that its two branded carriers, Frontier and Midwest, would combine under the Frontier Airlines name. The integration of these two airlines is expected to take 12-18 months.
