The flight will run through March, according to the Town Of Islip.

The flight schedule includes ones to Fort Lauderdale throughout the year, not seasonally, and an increase in Orlando flights from one to two times a day, every day but Tuesday,

Frontier will also add flights to Tampa, West Palm Beach, and Fort Myers, and year-round to Raleigh-Durham and Atlanta, formerly seasonal destinations.

In total 19 additional flights, compared to its previous fall schedule have been added to Frontier's schedule.

“These schedule improvements will make it easier than ever to fly from MacArthur Airport,” said Angie Carpenter, Islip Town Supervisor in a prepared statement. 

“Frontier’s decision to focus on Long Island indicates the enthusiasm we are seeing from Nassau and Suffolk County travelers. These are people who love to fly, enjoy the convenience of MacArthur Airport, and appreciate the low fares and choices from Frontier. The new service means good choices for our customers,” she added.

“Long Island is really responding to Frontier’s service, and we want to make it easier for people to fly more often," said the airline's Senior Vice President, Commercial Daniel Shurz.
