  • Frontier Airlines, which turned 20 this February, expanded its presence in the US domestic market with five new routes launched from Trenton, NJ (TTN) and Wilmington, DE (ILG) during the course of last week, all of which are operated thrice-weekly using its 138-seat A319s and 168-seat A320s. With the longest route being the 1,289-kilometre sector to St. Augustine, FL (UST), and the shortest being inaugurated to Detroit, MI (DTW) at 710 kilometres, the LCC will face no competition on any of the five new airport pairs. Commenting on the launches from Wilmington, Stephen Williams, Airports Director, Delaware River and Bay Authority, said: “Wilmington Philadelphia Airport and Frontier Airlines are fast becoming the best overall value for budget savvy passengers seeking alternatives for travel to and from the Delaware Valley. With the addition of Atlanta and Detroit to the flight schedule, Frontier continues to offer even more options for our customers. We want to be the consumer’s choice for low fares, free parking, big planes, great destinations, and a hassle-free, convenient airport experience.”
