Fly from MSP to Chicago for $29 (for a limited time, at least)


Planning a trip to Chicago this spring or summer? You've got a short amount of time to score a ticket for less than it costs to fill up your car's gas tank.

Frontier Airlines says it's rolling out 42 non-stop flights – and as part of the promotion, offering super cheap introductory fares. Frontier is a Denver-based budget airline, similar to others like Spirit Airlines or Allegiant Air.

One of Frontier's new routes? Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

And the introductory price is $29 (one way), you'll have to buy a ticket before 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 17, for a flight through that date and Aug. 15.


"For flights operating Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, off-peak fares are offered Tuesday. For flights operating Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, off-peak fares are offered Wednesday and Saturday. For flights operating daily, off-peak fares are offered Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. The following blackout dates apply: May 28 & 31, 2016, and July 5, 2016."

Eventually, the service will clock in as $59 one way. Frontier says that' about half off the industry average of $119.

To get "The WORKS" – which includes "includes one carry-on bag, one checked bag, best available seat including Stretch and Exit Row options" – you'll need to pay more.

The Arizona Republic says the 42 new routes are part of an "aggressive" expansion by the airline

Frontier is also offering a new route from MSP to Orlando starting Feb. 18.
