    Beginning in April, Frontier Airlines will fly two new routes in and out of Delaware.

    Frontier Airlines President and CEO Dave Siegel joined Gov. Jack Makell at the New Castle Airport this morning to announce service to Atlanta and Detroit.

    Earlier this year, the airline began flying commercial service to Orlando, Chicago, Tampa and Denver. This month, it will also begin flying regular routes to Ft. Meyers, Florida.

    “We want to built this together, we want to be a partner, we’re excited to be growing and adding service, its all good news, its good news for us as we expand the business, its obviously good news for the community as we bring low fares to more destinations,” said Siegel.

    The airline was initially flying routes to Houston but dropped the service after a few months due to low sales.

    “The Houston market was a disappointment for us for sure,” added Siegel. “Houston is the fourth largest city in the U.S. so you would have thought that service here would have been successful. I would say to be very blunt, probably the lesson there is that the folks in Denver who do the planning need to work even more closely with the local community here as we think of new market opportunities.”
