Is Frontier really offering $15 flights from Austin to Portland, Seattle and other cities?

The latest deal announced by Frontier Airlines earlier today sounds too good to be true — $15 flights from Austin to a variety of destinations including Portland, Seattle, Detroit, Albuquerque, Reno and Providence.

So can you actually go online and book a $15 flight? Sort of.

You can find one or two $15 fares either to or from each destination, but they’re hard to come by and dates are limited. That said, there are some great deals to be found.

For example, I was able to book a flight to Seattle on June 11 for $59 and get the $15 fare for my return flight on June 16. The total for my reservation was $72.40, a great deal for a roundtrip summer flight to Seattle. Keep in mind that Frontier charges extra if you want to pick your seat or bring baggage, both of which I declined.

If you have flexible dates and want to take a trip in June, it’s definitely worth seeing what you can find. Click here to view all the deals. I recommend using the monthly calendar feature to quickly scan available fares.

This deal must be purchased by May 25 and a three-day advance purchase is required. Travel is available through June 20.
