Frontier Airlines has pushed back its return to Wilmington (New Castle) Airport until 2021.
The low-fare airline plans to add nonstop service to and from Orlando.
The airline’s return to the airport last spring had been put on hold, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Frontier later put added a mid-November start date on its online reservations site.
However, Florida and other states have seen a spike in Covid-19 cases, with airline bookings taking a hit after showing signs of a modest recovery.
Frontier has been restoring service from Philadelphia and other cities. The carrier has targeted the Delaware Valley as a growth area, with flights from Philadelphia and Trenton.
The airline has touted its new fleet of jets with state of the art filtration systems as well as stepped-up sanitation procedures.
Many passengers remain wary of flying, due to social distancing issues.
Frontier offers discount fares, with seat assignments and baggage in overhead bins with additional fees.
