Frontier Airlines is launching non-stop service in November between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and both Trenton Mercer Airport (TTN) in New Jersey and Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO) in North Carolina.

The airline will operate twice-weekly round-trips on the Orlando-Trenton route from November 16 and three-times-weekly service between Orlando and GSO, which serves the North Carolina Triad cities of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point, from November 17.


Frontier Airlines will be the only carrier providing scheduled carrier service from Trenton-Mercer Airport. To promote the new service, Frontier is offering fares from $69 each way, for purchase through August 11 at www.FrontierAirlines.com.

Frontier Airlines Airbus A319 N929FR, "Larry the Lynx", takes off from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Under the ownership of Republic Airways Holdings, Frontier Airlines operates a fleet of Airbus A318s, A319s and A320s; Bombardier Q400s; Embraer ERJ-135s and ERJ-145s; and Embraer 175s and 190s. All of the Embraers were originally ordered by its parent company for operation by other carriers in the group before Republic bought Frontier, which Republic has merged with another carrier it bought, Midwest Airlines

The carrier is also offering promotional one-way fares from $59 on the Orlando-Greensboro route, the fares again being available only on its website and available through August 11.

Fares issued under the two promotions are valid for travel from the respective launch dates of each service until March 17, 2013.

“The addition of Trenton-Mercer Airport is exciting for Frontier as we introduce our high value, low fare service to the southern New Jersey region,” says Daniel Shurz, Frontier’s senior vice president, commercial. “Frontier customers will enjoy the unmatched convenience of the Trenton-Mercer Airport versus the two congested, high fare hubs in the region, as they travel nonstop to the major leisure attractions of Orlando and the central Florida area.”

“This is an exciting development for our region,” remarks Brian Hughes, Mercer County executive. “More than any other destination, residents of Mercer County have made it clear to me that Orlando tops their list, and I am so pleased that we are able to deliver. Trenton-Mercer Airport is in a great location, just off of I-95, that’s easily accessible to anyone traveling for business or pleasure.”

From November 16, Frontier’s twice-weekly Orlando-Trenton service will see one flight depart MCO on Fridays at 7:25 a.m. and arrive at TTN at 9:50 a.m. The other flight, on Mondays, will leave MCO at 12:55 p.m. and land at TTN at 3:20 p.m.

Frontier Airlines' mainline fleet is composed of Aibus A319s and A320s but Embraer 190s and ERJ-135s operated by sister Republic Airways Holdings carriers are increasingly appearing in Frontier's colors and operating flights on the combined Frontier-Midwest Express network under Frontier's flight code

In the other direction, Frontier’s Friday flights will depart TTN at 10:30 a.m. and touch down at MCO at 1:05 p.m. The carrier’s Monday flights will leave TTN at 4:00 p.m. and reach MCO at 6:35 p.m.

From November 17, the airline’s Orlando-Greensboro service will see a flight depart MCO on Saturdays and Mondays at 8:30 a.m. and land at GSO at 10:05 a.m. Frontier’s Wednesday flights will leave MCO at 8:00 a.m. and reach GSO at 9:35 a.m.

In the other direction, the carrier’s Saturday and Monday flights are scheduled to push back form the gate at GSO at 10:45 a.m.. in order to make a 12:15 p.m. arrival at MCO. Frontier’s flights on Wednesdays are timed to leave GSO at 10:15 a.m. and reach MCO at 11:45 a.m.

Frontier Airlines will operate both new routes with 138-seat Airbus 319 aircraft – featuring 30 channels of DirecTV service, available at every seat. Additionally, these flights will offer five rows of comfortable STRETCH seating with an additional five to seven inches of legroom, and the airline’s SELECT seating product.
