United Airlines will no longer operate in New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport as of Oct. 25, the airline announced Tuesday in a press release. Instead, it will offer additional cross-country, premium service flights out of Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.
Delta Air Lines will acquire United Airlines’ designated space at Kennedy Airport, while United Airlines will procure Delta Air Lines’ space at nearby Newark Liberty Airport, the press release added. Both deals require regulatory approval, which has yet to be given, CNBC reported. Delta Air Lines has yet to announce if it will cease operating out of Newark Liberty Airport altogether.
United Airlines did not turn a profit in its seven years operating from JFK airport, CNBC noted.
