Frontier Airlines to offer extra room on planes for a price

by Staff

Frontier Airlines has found a way to combat middle seat misery- but the perk comes at a price for customers who wish to upgrade.

On Tuesday, the budget airline announced the introduction of UpFront Plus, a new upgraded seating option that offers extra space in the first two rows of the aircraft. 

According to Frontier, customers will enjoy a window or aisle seat with extra legroom and a guaranteed middle seat. 

“Many consumers strongly prefer a seating option that offers extra space when flying,” said Frontier Airlines CEO Barry Biffle. “Frontier is all about choice and giving consumers the flexibility to customize their travel to suit their individual needs and preferences. UpFront Plus is a great option for those who want expanded personal space and extra comfort.”

Customers can upgrade to UpFront Plus seating for flights departing on or after April 10 by reserving seats on the Frontier mobile app or at FlyFrontier.com. 

The extra space and individual armrests come at a price, the airline said.
