American Airlines Plans To Leave The Duluth International Airport
DULUTH, Minn. – One day after Duluth Airport officials celebrated the expansion of flights from Delta, we’re learning American Airlines is packing up to leave DLH.
On April 28, the major airline will discontinue its two daily non-stop flights between Duluth and Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.
American joined Delta and United in Duluth just last year.
A spokeswoman for the Duluth airport says American Airlines’ profit expectations were not met.
Only about 67 percent of seats have been getting booked on the flights.
Duluth Airport officials say this is a prime example of why flying local is so important.
The Duluth International Airport will continue to offer daily non-stop flights to and from Chicago through United Airlines, and to and from Minneapolis through Delta.
