Opinion/Letter: Control tower closure will cripple Trenton Mercer Airport (KTTN), New Jersey

It is astonishing to me that the traffic control tower at Trenton-Mercer Airport will be closed next month. Spending cutbacks are long overdue and will always affect some more than others, depending on what has to be cut, but removing air traffic control from any airport of any size that has enough traffic to warrant a tower is ludicrous.

Despite assurances that the airport will operate safely without a tower, this is sure to have a negative effect on Frontier Airlines at this critical time, when it is building its presence and reputation in our area. This letter is an urgent plea to our legislators to keep this from happening.
