TTN Is Now In Philly According To Kayak

Sun Aug 19, 2012 11:40 am

After emailing them about the addition of Frontier Airlines to TTN, they added TTN to their list of airports. Unfortunately they think TTN is located in Philadelphia. Its listed as "TTN: Philadelphia, PA" on the iphone app and "Philadelphia, PA (Trenton-Mercer) on the website. Why do they list it as Philly when MMU in Morristown (which only has 1 charter airline that Kayak wont search for) is listed as MMU: Morristown and not "Newark, NJ (Morristown Municipal)" I'd bet more people know where Trenton is than does Morristown.

Sites like Kayak give users the option to select alternate airports in an area for which they are searching for flights. Kayak is simply listing TTN as an alternate airport for the Philadelphia area, and they also list ABE and EWR as alternative airport for searches out of Philly. I live in the Atlanta area and in the past I've had searches that included flights out of Macon, GA and even AHN (Athens, GA) has appeared as an alternative airport in Kayak searches.

Except if I type in ABE it doesn't show up as "Philadelphia,PA: Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton". I will say though in the flight details it just reads Trenton-Mercer.

I guess this threw all the travel sites for a loop because Orbitz doesn't recognize TTN or Trenton, NJ. You have to go to Phl and check nearby airports. So I apoligize to Kayak, I probably over reacted a bit
