Airport Agent Assistance

Here at Frontier, we make optional services available to you to personalize your travel.

Airport Agent Assistance is available for purchase for our passengers who prefer assistance at the airport for things like checking in, printing your boarding pass, or having their bag manually tagged where self-tagging is available. To avoid this charge, passengers may check-in online, bring a printed boarding pass or use the Frontier mobile app for a digital boarding pass, and self-tag their bag.
