Delaware is the only U.S. state without scheduled commercial flights. However, this will now change.
Beginning May 14, Frontier Airlines will relaunch service to Wilmington/New Castle Airport in Delaware:
Delaware’s commercial flights have been on and off over the past few decades. At one point, Delta served it from Atlanta.
Delaware last had commercial flights when Frontier pulled out of the airport in 2015 stating it wasn’t profitable.
A big reason for this city not having scheduled flights is because it’s only a 30 minute drive away from Philadelphia Airport.
Frontier’s new flight appears to be 3x weekly flights between Wilmington-New Castle and Orlando beginning May 14 on the Airbus A319. The flight is loaded in Frontier’s booking system but not available for booking just yet.
We’ll see how long this flight lasts…
Anyways, congrats to Delaware for securing the flight!
