Starting November 1, 2018, Frontier Airlines has stopped accepting Unaccompanied Minors travelling alone if they are below 15 years of age, i.e., it no longer offers the Unaccompanied Minor service on flights.
Per Frontier Airlines rules for minors, children below 15 must hold the same reservation as an accompanying adult or be undecided and accepted on the flight. That means children below 15 years are not allowed to travel alone; they must be advised by a passenger at least 15 years old.
