Flight Status & Airline Guide
With its headquarters in Denver, Colorado, Frontier Airlines is the eighth-largest commercial airline in the United States with the simple tagline 'Low Fares Done Right.' The driving philosophy behind the company is to treat passengers with the utmost hospitality. Unlike other airlines, each passenger is offered the 'Done Right' promise, which in actuality allows them to customize their flight according to their specific needs and budget. With the simple motto to make travel accessible to all, the airline has set in place low fares which allows everyone to travel freely without having to worry about the cost.
The online flight status system used for Frontier Airlines allows passengers to stay up to date with the latest information regarding their flight. The Frontier flight tracker uses advanced technology making it possible for the passengers to get the desired information about their flight at all times.
Whether your plane is in-transit, delayed, canceled, or at the gate waiting for you to board, its status will be updated to the flight tracker for you to check before you leave for the airport.
Passengers, their loved ones, or literally anyone can track the flight's location and status using only the flight number and departure date. But in case one isn't aware of the flight number, one can use the set route of the flight as parameters and search for the flight on the flight tracker.
So instead of calling Frontier Airlines customer service for the flight status, you can use the online flight tracker for Frontier to check the location, status, and the desired information regarding every flight. Get accurate, up-to-date, direct from the source information through the flight tracker and never be late or too early for a flight, because both waiting and running at the airport isn't much fun.

History of Frontier Airlines
Frontier Airlines, an ultra low cost carrier based in Denver, has a complicated history with two incarnations. Originally, the airline was formed in June 1950 by the merger of Arizona Airways, Challenger Airlines, and Monarch Airlines. It became quite popular among the passengers in the year 1967 when it purchased Central Airlines of Texas.
But all things come to an end, which is why in the 1980s, when the airline began to face intense competition from the other carriers in the industry, it was sold at a low-price to People Express in 1985 who later sold it to Continental in 1986 and that is how the first life of Frontier came to an end.
Later on, in 1994, when Continental Airlines secured the Denver hub, and the former executives of the original Frontier airline began developing a business plan, it gave rise to a new airline called Frontier, which started with only two planes in operation.
The airline grew faster than expected and began to add destinations in the US and Mexico, making it popular among the passengers once again. But due to the price hike experienced in the fuel industry back in 2007 and 2008, the carrier went through great financial loss and filed for bankruptcy.
Republic Airlines bid to purchase the airline, and it became a subsidiary of Republic in 2009. But that only worked for a few years until in 2013 when Republic Airways Holdings signed an agreement with Indigo Partners to sell Frontier Airlines for around $145 million. Since then, Frontier has been a subsidiary of Indigo Partners and operates as an ultra-low-cost carrier in the country.
