American Airlines Temporarily Suspends Service To Joplin

City of Joplin

Beginning October 7, American Airlines will suspend service to Joplin.  That city is one of 15 markets the airline is suspending service to because of what it call low demand and the expiration of the air service requirements associated with the CARES Act.

For now, the changes will remain in place until November 3.  But American Airlines in a news release said it will continue to “reassess plans for those and other markets as an extension of the Payroll Support Program remains under deliberation.”

The airline expects to release its updated November schedule by late September.
