American Airlines has cut its daily flights from Miami to the VC Bird International Airport in Antigua.
Passengers will no longer be able to depart Miami for Antigua on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the month of September and October.
According to reports this is due to significantly lower demand, information from an Airline source have informed.
It has not yet been decided whether the two days will be added back come November.
“The cancelling of the Tuesday and Wednesday flight mean a lot more than just less airlift in the short term”, Jeff Wellemeyer, Chairman of Hodges Bay Resort & Spa told the Antiguan Trumpet.
“It is absolutely critical that we get the daily New York flights resumed as quickly as possible and having American Airlines cut their schedule for the normally packed Miami flight, is not a good sign that they will resume other flights quickly. This could really set us back” he said.
