Frontier Airlines set to fly larger planes out of Trenton

Frontier Airlines has announced that the low-cost carrier is replacing its fleet of planes that fly out of Trenton-Mercer Airport with larger, more fuel-efficient aircraft this spring.



The Denver-based airline intends to swap out its aging Airbus A319s with A320s beginning with one daily flight out of the Ewing Township airport on March 21.



Frontier expects to have all of its A320s in circulation at Trenton-Mercer Airport by April 21. The transition will increase the number of seats on each Frontier flight from 150 to either 180 or 186.



Airline spokesman Rich Oliver says the switch to the larger planes will help Frontier better match the demand out of the Trenton market.



No changes will need to be made to the airport for it to accommodate the bigger aircraft.
