SALT LAKE CITY — Ready for a trip in the next few weeks? Frontier Airlines has a deal that may work for you.

Frontier announced today their “Fly For Only a Buck” sale, a promotion that includes last-minute flights from several cities across the country for only $1 (plus fees).

What’s the catch?

The ticket is only $1, but after the fees you will pay $15 each way. You’ll also pay extra for a carry-on bag, checked bag or seat assignment. However, if you’re willing to travel with a backpack and fine with a middle seat in the back of the plane, you could fly for as little as $30 round-trip.

According to Frontier, the flights are from Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Trenton and Washington, D.C. However, we found several other cities that are included in the $1 sale. According to flyfrontier.com, flights from $15 to $50 were available from Salt Lake City to Chicago O’Hare and Denver as part of the sale.

You can check for flights at flyfrontier.com. Their website is getting slammed as a result of the deal, so the pages may take a long time to load.

The terms

You must purchase tickets by midnight. Travel is valid from September 2-16. September 8 is a blackout date.
