United Airlines says it is suspending service at New York City's JFK Airport

NEW YORK (WABC) -- United Airlines is following through on its threat, announced earlier this month, to end operations at JFK Airport because federal regulators are not letting them operate more flights there.

The decision, announced Friday, is effective Oct. 29.

This is the second time United has pulled out of Kennedy, they also did so in 2016 and stayed out for five years. They resumed in 2021 during a change in travel dynamics during the pandemic.

United is currently operating a skeleton schedule of four flights -- two daily roundtrips to San Francisco and two more to Los Angeles.

United told the FAA earlier this month that if they aren't able to expand, it doesn't make sense for them to operate out of the airport.
