Frontier Continues Expansion in Trenton with $29 Fares to Columbus, Detroit and Raleigh

My ongoing excitement (?) over Frontier’s decision to keep throwing flights at Trenton built today when they announced 5 new destinations from the city that makes what the world takes.

Beginning in April they’ll roll out not-quite-daily service from Trenton to Atlanta (4x weekly), Chicago Midway (6x/week), Columbus (3x/week), Detroit (4x/week) and Raleigh-Durham (6x/week) all on A319 aircraft. Better yet, fares start at just $29 to Columbus, Detroit and Raleigh, which is amazing (obviously).

Until Trenton, Frontier really hasn’t played the wildly-low-fare game when it has entered new markets, though it seems to be rolling out a strategy of not-quite-daily service on thin routes with no competition (the Trenton flights; Orlando-Shenendoah Valley; Orlando-Columbia (Mo).

Frontier has struggled mightily in Denver, and they’ve pretty quietly started rolling out an Allegiant/Spirit-like series of services. If they can make Trenton work at $29 introductory fares, I suspect they’ll be moving aircraft out of Denver and on to more of these types of routes.

Wisconsin Residents Can Convert Frontier EarlyReturns Miles to Delta SkyMiles…Plus a Status Match Challenge

Frontier is making an interesting offer to WISCONSIN RESIDENTS ONLY: because they have reduced service dramatically to Milwaukee, they are allowing its frequent flyer program members with Wisconsin addresses to convert their miles 1:1 to Delta SkyMiles through August 31st.

In addition, if you are a Frontier Ascent or Summit member and do not currently have a Delta SkyMiles account, they will offer you Silver Medallion status for 90 days, which you can keep for the year if you fly 8,000 miles or 10 Medallion Segments within 90 days.

Other key info: you must transfer all of your miles, and you must have a Wisconsin address on your Frontier account prior to June 4th. FAQ here.
