been without for far too long," U.S. Senator Chris Coons said. "This is
exciting news. The convenience and value that Delawareans will enjoy by having
a full-service airline in New Castle County is significant, reducing travel
time on the ground and ticket costs in the air. I'm grateful that Frontier has
chosen to invest in Delaware and look forward to taking advantage of this new
opportunity."

“Now is the perfect time to bring commercial air back to Delaware,” said
Congressman John Carney. “The New Castle County Airport is a convenient option
for travelers in the Mid-Atlantic region, and provides easy access to the
businesses and attractions located in Delaware.This project is also a boost
for the economy that brings quality jobs for flight attendants,
ground-handling employees, and maintenance technicians.I’m excited to see
travelers once again flying into and out of New Castle County Airport.”

“We are pleased to welcome Frontier Airlines to Wilmington and low-fare,
quality service for the residents of the Delaware Valley region,” said Stephen
Williams, Airports Director for the Delaware River and Bay Authority,

characteristics, New Castle Airport is ideally positioned to be a growth
catalyst for the area. We believe Frontier’s decision to schedule daily
