Frontier Airlines

Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines today begins service at New Castle Airport (ILG) with nonstop flights to Orlando International Airport (MCO). To celebrate this new service, Frontier is offering fares as low as $19*.

"We’re overjoyed to begin service at New Castle Airport with nonstop flights to Orlando and return commercial air service to Delaware," said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial, Frontier Airlines.

"Air service is an economic driver for communities and Frontier is committed to providing ‘Low Fares Done Right’ to local flyers. We’re delighted to welcome Wilmington area travelers onboard and look forward to continuing our incredibly valuable partnership with the Delaware River and Bay Authority."

"Wilmington – New Castle Airport is recognized as a key economic engine for our region, and this new service will boost both business and tourism access to Delaware and the Tri-State area," said DRBA Executive Director Thomas J. Cook.

"With the restart of Frontier’s flights today, the State of Delaware is no longer the only state in the union without regularly scheduled commercial service."

New Castle Airport offers passengers convenient parking while they are traveling. The airport has ample spaces and pricing is $5 per day after the first hour.

Frontier is focused on more than low fares. The carrier offers customers the ability to customize travel to their needs and budget. For example, customers can purchase options a la carte or in one low-priced bundle called the WORKS. This bundle includes refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat, waived change fees, and priority boarding.

The airline’s frequent flyer program, FRONTIER Miles, lets members enjoy many benefits as well as the ability to attain Elite status. Like the airline, FRONTIER Miles is family friendly, and the program makes it easy for families to enjoy the rewards together, including family pooling of miles. FRONTIER Miles is aptly named because you earn one mile for every mile flown – no funny formulas at Frontier. Whether customers travel a little or a lot, they will find FRONTIER Miles rewarding.

The health and safety of customers and team members is Frontier’s number one priority. With that in mind, Frontier introduced sweeping health and safety enhancements in 2020 that touch every step of a customer’s travel journey with the airline.

Frontier requires all customers and crew members wear a face covering throughout their travel journey. Plus, anyone flying with Frontier must complete a health acknowledgement prior to flying confirming that:

  • Neither they nor anyone in their household has exhibited Covid-19 related symptoms in the last 14 days
  • They will wash their hands/sanitize before boarding the flight
  • They understand and acknowledge the airline’s face covering policy and pre-boarding temperature screening policies

During flight, main cabin air is a mix of fresh air drawn from outside and air that has been passed through an air filtration system that features HEPA filters capable of capturing respiratory virus particles at more than 99.9% efficiency – similar to those used in hospital environments. Frontier’s modern all-Airbus fleet is among the youngest in the world - all aircraft currently in operation are less than four years old.
