American Airlines has become the latest major carrier to drastically slash service to the NYC area amid the region’s swelling number of coronavirus cases.

Starting April 7, American Airlines will be offering an extremely limited number of flights out of LaGuardia Airport (LGA), John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), reducing service by at least 90 percent at each airport.

American Airlines will now operate only eight daily flights out of LGA, three out of JFK and two from EWR. Last April, American Airlines operated 170 out of LGA, 80 out of JFK and 21 out of LGA, on an average day.

Furthermore, each of these flights will operate between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET, as “turn-only operations with no aircraft or crew remaining overnight,” according to American Airlines. Flights will also have capacity restrictions to help ensure passengers are maintaining social distance.
