TRENTON, N.J.—Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes announced today that Frontier Airlines will expand its low-fare service at Trenton-Mercer Airport in Ewing with the addition of nonstop service to Cincinnati, Ohio, and Charlotte, N.C., both beginning Feb. 12, 2014. To celebrate this announcement, Frontier is offering fares as low as $39 each way through Oct. 20, 2013.

“By adding these new routes to Charlotte, North Carolina, and Cincinnati, Ohio, Frontier continues to strengthen its network for travelers in the Mercer County region, going from nine destinations to 11,” Hughes said. “As we gear up for the grand reopening of an improved Trenton-Mercer Airport on Nov. 8, we eagerly welcome back Frontier, its loyal customers and all those who are excited to fly Frontier at Trenton-Mercer.”

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. The addition of these 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.

“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 Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial. “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.”

Frontier 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.

Conveniently located near Exit 2 on I-95, Trenton-Mercer Airport avoids the hassles, delays and lines often found at other Northeast airports. When the airport reopens on Nov. 8, it will feature additional parking, improved baggage service, increased capacity at security and a gate area featuring additional seating, restrooms and food and drinks.
