Frontier Airlines will expand its service at the Trenton-Mercer Airport in Ewing with the addition of nonstop flights to Cincinnati, Ohio, and Charlotte, North Carolina, the airline announced today. The new service will begin Feb. 12.
Frontier is the only airline providing scheduled service out of Trenton-Mercer Airport. The addition of the two cities brings Frontier’s total nonstop destinations served from Trenton-Mercer Airport to 11: Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago-Midway, Cincinnati, Columbus, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Raleigh-Durham and Tampa.
The airline has scheduled three weekly flights between Trenton-Mercer Airport and Cincinnati, and four weekly flights between Trenton-Mercer and Charlotte. All Frontier flights from Trenton-Mercer will operate on 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft.
Frontier is offering special deals as low as $39 each way through Oct. 20 to celebrate the new service.
“This is a great day for consumers as we bring two new low-fare options to the Trenton/Princeton area, providing a time- and money-saving option to even more customers throughout the region,” said Frontier Vice President Daniel Shurz. “Customers who fly from Trenton-Mercer Airport can enjoy a newly upgraded airport with fewer hassles and convenient parking compared with other airports in the region.”
The grand reopening of the Trenton-Mercer airport is scheduled for Nov. 8. When the airport reopens, it will feature additional parking, improved baggage service, increased capacity at security and a gate area featuring additional seating, restrooms and food and drinks. Parking at the airport will no longer be free, however. The Mercer County freeholders voted last month to approve an ordinance that would allow the county to charge parking fees of up to $2 per hour for short-term parking at the airport and between $4 and $10 for long-term parking. The county administration will implement the plan.
