Ithaca Airport to Lose American Airlines; Company Blames Pilot Shortage

Local News is brought to you by:

American Airlines is blaming the pilot shortage for its latest round of destination cuts the company has made.

The company announced beginning on September 7th the airline will no longer operate out of Ithaca, NY., Islip, NY., and Toledo, Ohio. The announcement comes at bad timing when travel demand has now reached pre pandemic levels and airlines are struggling to serve their customers.

Ithaca Airport still has Delta Connection and United Express with flights to Detroit and Newark Airports.
