Yenra : Air Travel : Frontier Airlines : Thanksgiving Holiday Travel Tips

As our nation looks forward to the Thanksgiving holiday, Frontier Airlines provides passengers with a few tips -- and several check-in options -- to ensure a smooth and safe holiday travel experience.

Frontier recommends that travelers arrive at the airport two hours prior to scheduled flight departure time.

Frontier also offers the following tips for its customers traveling this holiday season:

To stay informed of schedule changes or to check the status of any Frontier flight, customers are encouraged to check real-time flight status on the airline's web site.

Eligible customers may skip ticket counter lines by using Frontier's new FlexCheck online or kiosk based check-in system, which allows passengers to check in and print a boarding pass, either from a home PC or a convenient airport kiosk, located at the DIA ticket counter.

Customers, especially those checking ski, snowboard, golf, or sporting equipment, are encouraged to use Frontier's full-service curbside check-in at Denver International Airport, which is located on the east side of DIA on Levels 5 and 6.

Customers checking in at Frontier's Denver International Airport hub are encouraged to access the A Concourse via the sky-bridge on the north side of the main terminal to avoid potentially crowded trams.

Ascent and Summit level members of EarlyReturns, Frontier's frequent flyer program, may use the elite lines at the security checkpoints and ticket counter at DIA and other airports where the service is available, to expedite access to the gates.

Please remember that all carry-on luggage is subject to inspection at all security checkpoints.

Only ticketed passengers are allowed beyond the security checkpoint. Proper, government issued identification, such as a state-issued drivers license or a passport, along with a coordinating boarding pass, will be needed to pass through security.

All wrapped packages/gifts will be unwrapped and inspected. In order to keep this process running quickly and efficiently, Frontier Airlines advises that all passengers abide by the TSA permitted and prohibited items
