Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes today announced that for the first time in its 85-year history, Trenton-Mercer Airport will offer international service. Beginning on Nov. 20, Frontier Airlines will offer non-stop service to Nassau, Bahamas.
Flights to Nassau will be offered twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays. To celebrate the announcement, Frontier is offering fares starting at $79 each way to Nassau for tickets purchased through Aug. 23. The special offer, which begins at 10 a.m. Aug. 19, is only available through the airline’s website at www.flyfrontier.com.
“The Mercer County region continues to perform for Frontier, and the addition of service to the Bahamas further raises Trenton-Mercer Airport’s profile as a great small airport that frees travelers from the headaches often seen at surrounding metropolitan airports,” Hughes said. “We’re excited that for the first time in our long history, Trenton-Mercer Airport will host a commercial airline that offers direct flights to an island resort, and we’re optimistic that this is a sign of future growth.”
Daniel Shurz, a senior vice-president with Frontier, said the airline is excited to expand at Trenton-Mercer Airport again and offer the first international destination.
“These introductory fares attest to our ongoing commitment to make air travel more affordable and accessible,” Shurz said. “We are confident customers will love these amazing low fares and the ability to optimize their travel experience for the comfort and value they seek.”
Two weeks ago, Frontier announced that it was adding West Palm Beach to its Florida destinations.
The addition of Nassau brings the total number of destinations Frontier serves from the Trenton-Mercer Airport to 18. The airline previously offered nonstop flights to Columbus and New Orleans, but then eliminated those routes.
Frontier is the only airline providing scheduled service out of Trenton-Mercer Airport. The airport is located in Ewing off of Scotch Road. Non-stop destinations served from Trenton-Mercer Airport:
• Fort Lauderdale
• Fort Myers
• Nassau, Bahamas
• St. Louis
• West Palm Beach
