Frontier plans late 2015 return to Delaware

NEW CASTLE, DELAWARE (11/27/2014) The on-again, off-again flights of Frontier Airlines in Delaware may be on again.

The airline, which announced earlier this week its last flights at New Castle Airport would end by the spring, now says it plans to return to the airport late in 2015 with non-stop service to at least one Florida destination “on a seasonal basis.”

The airline, which started its flights from the airport in 2013 and expanded to multiple destinations, had gradually scaled back this year.

The latest plans were announced Wednesday by the Delaware River and Bay Authority, which operates the airport, and Frontier spokesman Todd Lehmacher.

Airport Director Stephen D. Wiliams said, “We certainly welcome today’s confirmation of Frontier’s commitment o the Delaware market served through Wilmington – ILG. Our customers want more service, not less, and we know they will continue to support air service to Wilmington by flying Frontier from ILG whenever it fits their travel plans.”
