Airline to begin service Oct. 25

Frontier Airlines said on Tuesday (July 27) that it would begin flights this fall from New York Stewart International Airport to three Florida cities.

The airline said it will serve Orlando four times per week beginning Oct. 25 and Miami and Tampa three times a week beginning Nov. 2.

Frontier is offering $39 one-way fares on select weekdays for travel between Oct. 25 and Feb. 9, with holiday blackouts. The promotion ends Aug. 2.

It is the first time that Frontier has flown out of Stewart, which is located in New Windsor. The airport is run by the Port Authority, which said it has invested $37 million in the facility and offered airlines incentives to add Stewart to their stops.

American Airlines offers flights from Stewart to Philadelphia while Allegiant flies to Myrtle Beach, Savannah and four cities in Florida. JetBlue and Delta last year suspended their flights because of the pandemic.

One thought on “Frontier Will Fly to Florida from Stewart

  1. Are you ready for this? Ten flights per week from Florida, the super-spreader capital of the U.S., full of possible anti-vaxxers, landing at Stewart Airport and spreading out into the Hudson Valley. Media announcements of this impending catastrophe, which is touted as a great boon, contain nothing — not one single word — about COVID-19 or safety measures or masks or vaccine requirements. The Current, it seems, is likewise guilty of such omissions, parroting the sales pitch and happily quoting Frontier Airlines’ prices without raising any questions about our safety. Well, I have a question for Albany: Will this be worth it in lives lost?
