Frontier Airlines has brought back their very wide open status match opportunity that we saw in 2020. The airline has partnered with statusmatch.com to run the match again this year and it’s quite an easy one. The airline will match your status from 15 different airline or 15 different hotel programs. It’s pretty rare for an airline to match a hotel status, I believe WestJet Rewards was one of the first to do so back in 2016 (read about that here) however that required one flight. With Frontier’s offer there is no flight requirement. You simply have to pay a $49 processing fee for your status match and apply by December 21, 2021
Here are the airline and hotel programs that Frontier Airlines is matching to and respective levels you would receive:
Ideally if you decide to go for this status match you’ll want to provide the competing airline or hotel program’s elite credentials that you have that will get you the highest level in Frontier’s program.
Everyone who is approved for the status match will see their new status level in their Frontier Miles account within 72 hours of being approved. The status is valid right through to December 2022 and if you want the status beyond that you’ll need to re-qualify the regular way – by flying with Frontier in 2022 and/or spending on a Frontier credit card . If you applied for and received this status match in 2020 you are not eligible for it this year.
Does anyone know if the status can be added to existing flight reservations on Frontier?
I would think so – as long as your Frontier Miles # is on the reservation you should get all the status benefits if your account has been updated to show the elite status.
