EWING, N.J. (AP) — Frontier Airlines will suspend all flights at Trenton-Mercer Airport this fall while runway work is completed.

The airline announced Friday that the gap in service will last from Sept. 9 through Nov. 7.

During that time, the airport will upgrade its main runway with safety enhancements mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Frontier recently announced that the planned shutdown of Trenton-Mercer Airport’s air traffic control tower due to federal budget cuts won’t affect service.

The airline is scheduled to begin service to Atlanta, Chicago-Midway, Columbus, Ohio, Detroit and Raleigh, N.C. next month. Frontier already flies between Trenton-Mercer and New Orleans, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa, Fla.
