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. Both Air Canada and WestJet elite status is included. 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.
Wrapping it up
Currently Frontier Airlines does not fly to Canada anymore, in the past they did serve Calgary and Vancouver so this status match most likely won’t garner a lot of attention here. However maybe you are a Canadian snowbird, student or working in the U.S. who could make use of it for any travel you have in the U.S. or from the U.S. to the Caribbean and Central America. Or perhaps you can utilize their flights from cities near the Canadian border like Seattle, Kalispell, Buffalo and Burlington. Either way we thought it would be good to let you know about this offer even though it is mostly targeted for a U.S. audience.
