Terms and Conditions
Codeshares allow us to sell seats on flights operated by other airlines. This means you can easily combine Frontier and flights with partner airlines to create a single itinerary.
These Terms and Conditions set forth the specific procedures and policies applicable to the operation of flights to and from the U.S. and Mexico operated by Frontier Airlines and Volaris – Mexico as part of codeshare operations. These terms and conditions are in addition to those of each airline. For a codeshare flight, when there is a discrepancy between either airline’s policies or procedures and these terms and conditions, this document applies to the codeshare flight.
Unless indicated below, the policies and procedures of the operating airline (that is, the airline whose aircraft you are flying on for that segment or leg of the codeshare itinerary) will apply.
Notifying Customers about Delays, Cancellations and Diversions
We provide our customers with information on delays, cancellations and diversions by any means available and through any means provided by you, as soon as any change is known: by e-mail, text, at airports, boarding gates and through airport screens (where available), through our crew members, airport personnel and our website.
When requesting information through Volaris’ telephone booking system, Volaris works to provide codeshare customers with timely and accurate flight information as soon as possible after a flight schedule change is known.
Suggestion: When making a reservation, it is important to provide all the requested data, especially your email address, so that in case of any change, you can be contacted.

As of 36th week of pregnancy, the pregnant passenger may travel by providing a medical certificate or by executing a release of responsibility in favor of Volaris, which will be available at the Volaris gate or ticket counter.
For Frontier flights, passengers who are pregnant are urged to consult with their doctor on whether it is safe to travel by air, including with due consideration to the possibility of turbulence, cabin pressurization, significantly increased risk of deep vein thrombosis associated with pregnancy, and lack of ready access to medical care. This is particularly important for women in their ninth month of pregnancy, who are urged to obtain an examination from their physician shortly before flying to confirm air travel will be safe. Women with a history of complications or premature delivery should not fly if pregnant. By traveling with Frontier, pregnant women acknowledge and accept these risks.

Your bags will be checked through to your final destination.
Baggage requirements vary depending on flight rates and routes.
The airline operating the segment of the codeshare flight on which any baggage is lost, damaged or delayed will have the sole liability for that baggage. A passenger, however, may file a baggage claim with either carrier.
The Montreal Convention applies to codeshare flights, which means that the airline’s limit of liability, if any, for the loss, damage or delay in the carriage of baggage (whether checked or carry-on) is limited to 1,131 Special Drawing Rights per ticketed passenger. The conversion rate, available at www.imf.org, in effect on the date of loss will be used for determining maximum liability amount.
Regarding codeshare flights originating within Mexico, on Volaris, the Mexican Civil Aviation Law (Ley de Aviación Civil) and the Volaris Indemnification Policy will apply. For more on this provision, go to the Legal Information section of the Volaris website at https://cms.volaris.com/en/site-information/legal-information/.
