Frontier Airlines Begins Charging for Ticket Changes

Frontier Airlines announced Friday that it will change its current, no-fee standby policy and will begin charging travelers who switch their flight on the same day the difference between the original ticket and the new ticket. The Denver-based airline will also charge $150 to make changes on days prior to the flight.

The airline, currently reorganizing under bankruptcy protection, stated that the change now reserves a seat for travelers instead of making them wait on standby, and that the new policy will eliminate delays usually caused by boarding standby passengers.

"Summit" level, frequent flier members of the airline will make same-day changes for free. The change is now in effect for tickets bought as of Friday, for travel beginning August 15.
