Frontier Airlines expands routes out of Stewart with $39 fares

Frontier Airlines announced Wednesday it will offer nonstop service to two more US destinations from New York Stewart International Airport, bringing the number of cities the carrier services out of Newburgh to five.

Frontier will launch direct flights three times a week to Atlanta and twice weekly to Raleigh-Durham starting on May 26, in time for Memorial Day weekend travel. The airline already flies from Stewart to Miami, Orlando and Tampa.

To celebrate the new service, Frontier is offering special introductory fares starting at $39 to Atlanta and $49 to Raleigh-Durham. The deal is valid for flights purchased between now and March 15, for nonstop travel on select days of the week; blackout dates apply.

“Today’s announcement means both visitors and residents of the southern Hudson Valley have more options for convenience and affordability with Frontier’s ultra-low fares and friendly service,” said Will Evans, senior manager of sales and distribution at Frontier Airlines in a news release.

The Stewart flights were among 27 additional nonstop routes and two new international destinations in Mexico that Frontier announced on Wednesday, in advance of the spring and summer travel seasons.

The Orange County-based Stewart Airport has pushed to expand flights following the travel downturn caused by the pandemic. Frontier in October began operating four weekly flights to Orlando and three weekly flights each to Miami and Tampa.

“The county appreciates Frontier making this investment into Stewart, which continues to be an integral part of the region’s economic development and tourism initiatives,” said Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus in a written statement.

“The expansion of Frontier’s service is an essential part of the Port Authority’s overall effort to achieve growth and become more competitive, and we look forward to our continued partnership in this endeavor,” said Omar Astacio, interim general manager of Stewart Airport in a news release.

The news also comes on the heels of the announcement of an international air carrier coming to Stewart this June. Play Airlines will offer direct flights to Iceland, with connecting service to 22 European cities. Additionally, Norse Atlantic Airways received tentative approval from the US Department of Transportation to begin operating flights between Stewart and Oslo.
