Frontier Airlines (F9, Denver Int'l) has announced in a press release that it will start services to New York Newark in mid-November 2019, shortly after its LCC rival Southwest Airlines (WN, Dallas Love Field) will have left the airport.

According to the ch-aviation schedules module, Frontier will launch the following services from Newark this year:

The majority of the flights will be operated with A320-200neo equipment, although Frontier also plans to occasionally deploy A320-200s or A321-200s to Newark.

The LCC said that in spring 2020, it plans to add flights to Tampa Int'l, Punta Cana, Cancún, Denver Int'l, Ontario, Chicago O'Hare, Raleigh/Durham, and Dallas/Fort Worth from Newark. While frequencies and launch dates are yet to be confirmed, it said it hoped to serve each of the routes at least daily.

Southwest Airlines has previously announced that it will leave Newark on November 3 in order to consolidate its New York operations at New York La Guardia.
