Earning Frontier Miles Flying

One of the easiest ways to earn miles with Frontier Airline Rewards is by flying Frontier airlines. Frontier uses the simple calculation of earning one Frontier Mile for every one mile flown. This rewards you for flying long distance with Frontier Airlines.

Frontier Status has 4-tiers which consists of member, Elite 20k, Elite 50k, and Elite 100k. Reaching Elite 50k and Elite 100k will earn you bonus miles. These elite levels are reachable by either obtaining a certain amount of Status Qualifying Miles or by flying a certain amount of segments on Frontier Airlines in a calendar year.
