Frontier Airlines Announces Temporary Schedule Suspension at Trenton-Mercer Airport due to Construction

Suspension Begins Sept. 9 and flights resume Nov. 8

DENVER (March 29, 2013)– Frontier Airlines will temporarily suspend flights from Princeton/Trenton from Sept. 9, 2013 through Nov. 7 2013, to accommodate construction of a federally mandated runway safety enhancement project scheduled at Trenton-Mercer Airport in Ewing, NJ. This announcement will not affect customers who have already purchased travel to or from Trenton-Mercer Airport as Frontier is currently only selling flights through September 8.

On March 31, 2013, Frontier will extend its schedule allowing customers to book travel through Nov. 13, 2013. Flights at Trenton-Mercer Airport within the temporary suspension period will not be available for sale, but flights from Trenton-Mercer will be on sale for travel from November 8, 2013.

“Our convenient, low-fare service will be unavailable for a two month period,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president, commercial. “We thank the County Executive Brian Hughes and county transportation officials for working cooperatively and productively with Frontier to move this work to the lowest demand period of the year and look forward to welcoming customers back on board Frontier flights from Trenton-Mercer airport in November.”

“These are necessary safety upgrades as required by the FAA, and our partners at Frontier were aware of those requirements when they began to service our region,” said Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes. “While suspending service is our least favored option, this short-term disruption will produce long-term gains. We are pleased that our partners at Frontier are able and willing to work with us as we meet our federal obligation.”

Effective April 8, 2013, Frontier will offer low-fare service at Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN), in Trenton, NJ, to five new nonstop destinations: Atlanta, Chicago-Midway, Columbus, Detroit, and Raleigh/Durham. This will bring Frontier’s total nonstop destinations from Trenton-Mercer Airport to 10. Frontier is the only airline providing scheduled service out of Trenton-Mercer Airport, the gateway to New Jersey’s state capital, all of central New Jersey, and southeast Pennsylvania, including metro Philadelphia.

Customers traveling on Frontier’s Princeton/Trenton routes will find more perks, more choice and more savings when booking on Frontier’s website, where Frontier guarantees the best travel value with its Low Fare Guarantee.

At Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN) conveniently located near Trenton in Ewing, NJ near exit 2 on I-95, Frontier customers will avoid the hassles, delays, and lines often found at other Northeast airports.  Trenton-Mercer Airport offers free parking plus convenient access to Avis and Budget rental cars.
