HANOVER TWP., Pa. - There will be one less way to get to Orlando come April.
The company's goal is to keep fares low but needs help from the airports to do so.
"Frontier is committed to providing its customers with convenient, low-fare service and relies heavily on airports keeping their costs competitive," said Greg Aretakis, Frontier's vice president, network and revenue. "Unfortunately, increasing fuel and other operating costs at Lehigh Valley International Airport have made it impossible to provide the low fares customers demand and, ultimately, we made the business decision to suspend our service."
The Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority said it's disappointed with Frontier's decision.
It says Frontier was offered an incentive package that "required no payment of landing fees for the first year of service. Marketing funds of approximately $50,000 were also given. There were also discussions in place about additional service to Denver.
LVIA points out it is not losing a destination. Allegiant Air will still offer non-stop service to Orlando.
