    I am picking up my 15 yr old granddaughter and want to know the procedure I need to follow to get approval to meet her at her plane since she has never flown before.

     

    You can ask for a gate pass from Frontier, but considering she's 15 and Trenton is a very small airport I don't think she'll have trouble finding you at the baggage claim instead.

    Some will be dropping my mom off and she has heart problems and needs help ! Will there be someone at door to help her to ticket counter and gate?

     

    She (or you) need to call Frontier before her flight to request wheelchair service.

    Can you buy breakfast food at terminal and can you take food on flight with you?

     

    Everything at TTN is currently under renovation, but there will probably be some breakfast food when the terminal re-opens. Yes, you can bring all food on the plane with you.

    No one ever answers the phone, Have bags missing and no help from this airport at least on the Airlines side of the house,

     

    For missing bags you need to contact the airline or its ground handler (open site & go to the 'Luggage' or 'Baggage' section).

     

  • No control tower - is that safe?

    I have to fly out of TTN on Frontier this week. I just heard somewhere that the "Sequestor" has closed their control tower. I'm sure that there's a way to take off and land without one.. just looking for reassurance from someone that knows how that's done. :-(

     

    This recent news article regarding Frontier expansion at TTN should reassure you. (at several airports throughout the country, the 'sequestor' was recently reversed).

     

    Frontier has jus extended its services at TTN - you are safe!

     

    Un-towered airports are no big deal, they just require talking to different people. The pilots will get a clearance into controlled airspace and a release time from the controlling ARTCC or TRACON (instead of the Tower), that ensures traffic separation once they leave the immediate vicinity of the airport. Takeoffs, landings, and the tiny bit of airspace around the un-towered airport are coordinated between the pilots via radio and eyesight (some aircraft are not equipped with radios.) If the weather is so low that you can't see, then no one can takeoff without a release time and an IFR clearance, which insures traffic separation but also greatly limits how many aircraft are able to land per hour (which is why busy airports have a control tower.) Is it safer with a tower? The short answer is yes...but at less busy airports, its analogous to wearing a helmet while driving a car. Wear your helmet on a motorcycle (busy airport.)
