As travel demands remain low due to the results of the pandemic, American Airlines on Thursday said it plans to suspend flights to 15 US airports starting in October.
American said it will cancel just over 700 flights in October to and from those 15 airports but warned it could make additional cuts or could reconsider if Congress provides more assistance.
"This is the first step as American continues to evaluate its network and plans for additional schedule changes in the coming weeks," the airline said.
American will halt flights to Del Rio, Texas; Dubuque, Iowa; Florence, South Carolina; Greenville, North Carolina; Huntington, West Virginia; Joplin, Missouri; Kalamazoo-Battle Creek, Michigan; Lake Charles, Louisiana; New Haven, Connecticut; New Windsor, New York; Roswell, New Mexico; Sioux City, Iowa; Springfield, Illinois; Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Williamsport, Pennsylvania starting Oct. 7.
The Transportation Department said Thursday it will "monitor ongoing access by the traveling public to the national air transportation system."
The U.S. Travel Association said Wednesday that travel "businesses and workers cannot wait until September or until after the election. Congress must come together immediately to pass meaningful legislation."
