The “Frontier” for passengers is expanding, again, for passengers using an area airport.
A Tampa, Florida-bound Frontier Airlines flight takes off from Wilmington Airport Monday morning marking the return of service from the Delaware airport to the Florida destination. A flight from Tampa will also land in Delaware on Monday.
Previously, Frontier ended service to Tampa — along with routes to four other locations — leaving only Orlando service between Delaware and the Sunshine State.
“We’re pleased that Frontier has resumed nonstop air service to Tampa, Florida,” said airports director Stephen Williams of the Delaware River and Bay Authority.
Tampa service on 138-seat Airbus A319 aircraft will run two days a week (Monday and
Friday) through the end of April.
“We’re looking forward to resuming seasonal service from Wilmington to Tampa providing local travelers a low fare option to two popular Florida destinations,” said Frontier Airlines spokesman Todd Lehmacher.
The Colorado-based air carrier began operating from Wilmington last summer, ending a five-year period in which Delaware had no commercial air service.
