Frontier Airlines cancels flights between Trenton-Mercer Airport and Bahamas citing lack of demand
Customers who purchased Frontier flights on the new route, which was to begin Nov. 20, are being contacted by the airline and offered refunds, or another flight to a Florida destination, Frontier spokesman Todd Lehmacher said in a email sent to Mercer County officials. Calls to customers started on Saturday, Lehmacher said.
“It is our desire to operate service to Nassau at some point in the future though no specific date is being contemplated at this time,” Lehmacher said in the email. “The primary driver for this decision is less than forecast available hotel capacity that is having a material impact on demand for flights.”
“Aircraft planned for our Nassau service will be reallocated to Trenton-Fort Lauderdale beginning just prior to Christmas and Washington Dulles to Miami when twice weekly service begins on Dec. 21,” Lehmacher said. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.”
Frontier announced the new route to the Bahamas in August and offered one-way fares as low as $79.
Frontier’s domestic destinations from Trenton-Mercer Airport include Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., Chicago-Midway, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Nashville, Tenn., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and St. Louis. The airline also offers a host of direct flights to various Florida airports including Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, St. Augustine, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
