Frontier launches monthly all-you-can-fly pass, but there's a catch

Frontier Airlines has launched a monthly all-you-can-fly-pass for $149, but there’s a catch.

According to the airline, the new monthly pass is a spinoff of the GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Fall and Winter Pass, which allows unlimited travel from Sept. 2, 2023 - Feb. 29, 2024 for $299.

Passholders can book as many flights as they want in 30 days with the monthly pass, with access to more than 85 U.S. and international destinations. But there are black-out periods and other restrictions: for both passes, you can only book domestic travel 24 hours in advance. International flights can be booked 10 days before departure.

"[It’s] a great option for those who want to ‘test the waters’ and give the pass a try," said Tyri Squyres, vice president of marketing, Frontier Airlines, in a prepared statement. "It’s also a great option for people who know they want to travel within a given month and have flight scheduling flexibility. Scores of consumers are using and enjoying the GoWild! Pass to travel affordably and see amazing new destinations or visit family and friends."
