Passenger traffic soared 30 percent at this N.J. airport last year

Frontier, a discount carrier based in Denver, seems to announce new or expanded flights every few months during the past couple of years. The last one was in February, announcing service to Charleston and Myrtle Beach in South Carolina as well as Jacksonville, Florida and Nashville, Tennessee.
All of this – the Frontier infusion and growing passengers tallies – has Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes crowing.
His administration has for years been grooming and touting the airport as a regional destination.
This week, in publicizing the 30 percent jump year over year, said the public – from online reviews, “Efficient” and “Way better than Newark or Philadelphia” – have a growing “love affair” with the airport.
Frontier, Hughes said in his recent rosy statements about the airport, has found the “right fit” for Trenton-Mercer, and flying consumers have discovered the airport’s convenient location off Interstate 95.
“In a market as competitive as the airline industry, Trenton-Mercer Airport is quickly becoming the first choice for leisure travelers, over the larger and more hectic mega airports,” the county executive said.
Last month, Frontier and Mercer County inked a new, five-year lease, and a few months ago, the FAA gave approval to an expansion plan that could lead to a new passenger terminal – which Hughes also wants to complete.
