American Airlines to Suspend Flights to 15 U.S. Cities
American Airlines said on Thursday it plans to suspend flights to 15 U.S. airports in October as travel demand remains low due to the coronavirus pandemic. These suspensions will be effective Oct. 7., which is in line with the expiration of the air service requirements associated with the Coronavirus Aid. For now, these changes are only in place for the October schedule period, which runs through Nov. 3, the American Airlines announcement says.
The airline will continue to re-assess plans for these and other markets as an extension of the Payroll Support Program remains under deliberation. The full, updated October schedule will be released Aug. 29, and American anticipates releasing its updated November schedule by late-September.
The list of suspensions includes a list of smaller airports, and will probably not affect most people. You can see the full list below and it will also be reflected on aa.com Aug. 29.
