American Airlines has ended its service to Tweed New Haven Regional Airport in Connecticut, leaving the airport with no commercial service flights.

The announcement comes a day after the commuter airline employees who staff American’s Tweed station reportedly were informed that they were being let go.

American said flights between Tweed and Charlotte were due to resume on November 5, pending congressional approval of another coronavirus stimulus package.

However, Tweed Executive Director Sean Scanlon said that American is “pulling out regardless of that.”
