Southwest airlines leaving the Newark airport
Frontier is landing in Newark the same month that rival low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines is leaving. Southwest Airlines has announced that it’s moving its operations out of Newark Airport due to the drop in revenue resulting from the grounding of the 737 Max. At the moment, there are 20 daily flights out of Newark to 10 cities, including Denver and San Diego.
Frontier’s announcement comes in the middle of construction at Newark airport. Terminal One, Newark Liberty’s $2.7 billion project, is under construction. They are transforming the oldest terminal into a new 1 million-square-foot space with 33 gates and 3,000-vehicle parking garage.
What do you think about Southwest leaving the Newark airport? And will you be using this opportunity for cheap flights?
