Later this month, United Airlines will shut down operations at JFK airport.

United Airlines on Friday revealed that it will stop operating to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) in late October, less than a month after threatening to do so.

United had earlier this month warned to do so if the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) did not give the airline more flights.

After resuming service in 2021, United has been operating just two flights per day from JFK, the busiest airport in the New York area, to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

100 JFK employees would be impacted by the move, according to United, although it highlighted that “no one is losing their job” and that employees will transfer to other adjacent terminals.

Through the FAA and by looking for business deals to buy slots from other airlines, United has been pursuing more spaces, that are takeoff and landing authorizations.

The FAA and the Port Authority have made significant infrastructure investments since 2008, including “the widening of runways, construction of multi-entrance taxiways, and the creation of aligned high-speed turnoffs,” according to United, who claims there is room for growth at JFK, the 13th busiest airport in the United States.

JetBlue Airways (JBLU.O) and American Airlines have broader schedules and more desirable flight times than United, which claims it cannot serve JFK without permanent slots (AAL.O).
