Allegiant Leaves Trenton-Mercer

Trenton-Mercer Airport has one less airline now that budget service Allegiant has announced it has stopped its flights to three Florida airports, leaving Frontier Airlines once again as the sole commercial service to fly out of the airport. Allegiant’s last flight was April 29.

“The suspension of our service was simply due to a lack of demand in the area,” Allegiant spokeswoman Krysta Levy told reporters. Allegiant had been at Trenton-Mercer for less than two years before calling it quits.

Frontier, however, continues to expand its service, and Mercer County, which owns the facility, is planning major upgrades to the airport including building new taxiways and a larger terminal.

Allegiant , 1100 Terminal Circle Drive, Trenton-Mercer Airport, West Trenton.

Name Change

The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association has changed its name to The Watershed Institute.

The group, founded in 1949 to keep water clean and safe in central New Jersey, has not changed its mission. In a statement the Watershed board said the former name was too long, prone to misstatement, and misleading because the group frequently works in geographic areas outside the Stony brook-Millstone region.
