Kids Fly Free on Frontier Now Includes Wilmington to Orlando
Frontier is offering $29 flights to Orlando to promote its return to Wilmington-New Castle Airport. It will be part of its Kids Fly Free program too.
Frontier is returning to Delaware.
The low-cost airline announced Tuesday that it will resume flights from Wilmington-New Castle Airport and it is promoting its return with a $29 flight to Orlando, Fla starting May 14 through Aug. 5. The $29 flights must be booked by Friday.
Frontier flew out of Delaware for two years, until it left in 2015. It returns with non-stop flights to Orlando. It says its service will be seasonal. As of Tuesday, its website showed flights to Orlando on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays through the first week in August.
The Wilmington-Orlando flights are also part of Frontier's Kids Fly Free program that allows one child to fly free for each adult passenger.
You have to join its Discount Den program ($59.99) and it defines kids as 14 and younger. It's not available on all flights.
Still, if you're flexible on when you can travel and have a couple younger kids, it might be a cheap way to visit a relative or go someplace warm for a few days.
Frontier also flies out of Philadelphia International Airport to a bunch of places.There are other restrictions. You have to book through FlyFrontier.com; it doesn't include fees for bags or picking a seat; it can't be combined with other promotions.
If you have older kids, the 14-and-under limit might discourage you, but if you have a bunch of little ones and an older one, Frontier says anyone over 14 is counted as an adult, so you qualify for a free child ticket if you buy an "adult" ticket for your 15-year-old.
We know. It sounds like a lot of math to go on vacation. But think of it this way: If you spend a couple hours working out the details, you'll either get a cheap vacation or you'll have made two hours of frigid winter weather go by even faster. Winter win!
