    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.)

     

  • Rudest people ever

    I have never been treated so rudely in my life. The staff at the airport is unhelpful, rude and just plain ignorant. There is no courtesy calls or reminders that you need to check in and if you miss your flight while you are standing right next to the desk they don't even have the courtesy to say "hey do you need to get on this flight" while your husband is using the VERY SLOW shuttle bus to park your vehicle. I would not fly out of Trenton or fly Frontier airlines again if it was the last choice on earth!!

     

  • WEBSITE UPDATES...SOUTHWEST SERVICING?

    They cant update this site because of the budget cutbacks.... Yeah...Sure ! Southwest is expanding here to compete with Frontier.

     

    Your post doesn't really make any sense. What are you referring to?

     

    Southwest has not announced any intention of coming to TTN.

     

  • Parking at TTN

    The parking Information at TTN airport is wrong

     

    What do you mean the parking is wrong? I would like to leave my car there for a few days while flying to Florida. Can't I do that? I've tried to call the airport but just get a message saying parking is free - is that true?

     

    As of March 9th,2013, you could park at TTN for free. They had weekly (long term) or overnight.

    From the "Airport Address" page At present, there are no commercial airlines serving the Airport - other than Streamline offering daily weekday flights to Boston/Hanscom (BED). For reservations or further information contact Streamline onlin or call 1-855-Fly-Strm.

    It says right on the airport info page "no commercial airlines currrently fly from TTN". That is incorrect.

     

    Not so, according to source: http://www.state.nj.us/counties/mercer/departments/airport/airlines.html - Frontier started 1/31/13 serving TTN

     

  • COMPLETELY WRONG INFORMATION!!!!

    "The Web's Best Airport Guide"??? I don't think so. TTN has non-stop service on Frontier Airlines to 10 cities (Detroit, Chicago, Columbus, Raleigh-Durham, Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Orlando) There is no such airline as Streamline going to Massachusetts. Your website is completely outdated and offers no current information about this airport. FAIL!

     

    You are barking up the wrong tree! iFly never made claims you state. It also was updated 1/27/13 stating "... Trenton Mercer Airport is mainly used for general aviation and averages about 100,000 takeoffs & landings per year. The only commercial airline at present is Frontier Airlines offering flights to Forida's Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale & Tampa, and to New Orleans." - that information came right from the source.
