NEW WINDSOR – American Airlines announced it will discontinue service this fall at New York Stewart International Airport and 14 other U.S. cities, citing the financial strain caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) responded with the following statement.
“Stewart International Airport helps drive our local economy here in the Hudson Valley, and any limitation or suspension of service is deeply concerning.
“This disappointing decision from American Airlines only highlights the need for Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans to stop obstructing critically-needed COVID-19 relief and recovery funding. This inaction is causing undeniable, long-term damage to vital industries and to the Hudson Valley. The political games must end – the success of our recovery is at risk.”
Rep. Maloney serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, as well as the Agriculture Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
