New Route of the Day – Americas (25 October 2021): Frontier between Orlando and New York SWF


Frontier Airlines launched its first ever service from New York Stewart International Airport (IATA code SWF, located around 100 kilometres from New York City) on Monday 25 October when it began 4-weekly service to the airport from its base at Orlando in Florida. This is the first of three routes it will operate from Stewart to Florida this winter, with service to Miami and Tampa (both to be served 3-weekly) launching on 2 November.

New York SWF is operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and already offers non-stop service to Punta Gorda, Orlando SFB and St. Peter-Clearwater in Florida, courtesy of Allegiant, which also serves Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. Allegiant also operated seasonal service to Savannah in Georgia during the summer.

According to Cirium Data and Analytics, Frontier will be serving 74 airports with non-stop service from Orlando during the week commencing 8 November 2021. This compares with 55 airports in pre-pandemic November 2019.
