Frontier and Spirit Airlines Will Be Merging

STEWART AIRPORT – Frontier and Spirit Airlines announced last Monday that they have reached a merger agreement combining the two low-cost carriers into “America’s most competitive ultra-low fare airline.”

Several months ago, Frontier began non-stop service from New York Stewart International Airport to Florida cities – Orlando, Miami, and Tampa.

The merger could mean a lot more service for Stewart, said Maureen Halahan, president of the Orange County Partnership.

“This is our time. It looks like things are going to start really turning around as Stewart is growing,” she said. “I won’t be surprised if the top corporate executives at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have a lot of planning ahead for New York Stewart International.”

Combined, the new airline will provide more than 1,000 daily flights to over 145 destinations in 19 countries.
