American Airlines to Stop Flights from Binghamton AirportPosted: Updated:
American Airlines has announced it's discontinuing services in Elmira and Binghamton next February.
A spokeswoman from the airline told Fox 40 in a written statement on Tuesday:
“On February 15, 2017, we are discontinuing service to and from Elmira and Binghamton from Philadelphia. Our network planning and scheduling teams constantly evaluate our network, looking at supply and demand for every route to better position ourselves to serve our customers. Canceling routes is never easy, particularly when there is a station closure involved, but it is what allows us to expand into new markets and add more frequencies.”
This is the second airline to announce plans to pull out of the Greater Binghamton Airport this year. In August, United Airlines announced it would stop flying out from the airport on November 29, 2016. Delta Airlines is still in the airport.
Fox 40 will provide more details on this story as they become available.
