Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is launching three new nonstop routes from Newark to the Caribbean, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The new service will be headlined by a pair of new nonstop service from Newark Liberty International Airport to both Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and Cancun, Mexico, both of which will launch in March and April 2020.
Frontier will also be launching new daily service from Newark to San Juan, Puerto Rico on Nov. 14, 2019.
“We’re excited to make flying more affordable for the Garden State with 15 new routes from Newark,” said Barry Biffle, President and CEO of Frontier Airlines. “With fares as low as $15, we hope we inspire more people to fly and are delighted to meet that demand with our ‘Low Fares Done Right’ promise. This includes a focus on serving families as well as the environment with a more sustainable approach to flying.”
The carrier said thew new flights from Newark would operate “outside the delay-prone afternoon hours.”
“We’d like to thank our partners at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the FAA for helping to establish Frontier as an effective low fare option at Newark Liberty Airport, without further contributing to delays in the most congested hours,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial for Frontier Airlines.
It’s the latest new service to the Caribbean out of Newark, which has seen its position grow in recent years as a jumping off point for flights to the wider region.
Indeed, earlier this month, United announced a new nonstop route from Newark to Curacao, while JetBlue recently launched year-round flights from Newark to Barbados.
