ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – United Airlines will cease operations at the Elmira Corning Regional Airport effective Jan. 6, 2020, according to Jonathon Guerin, Senior Manager of Public Relations for United Airlines.
Vincent Azzarelli, Director of Public Information said “United notified us yesterday; they are notifying employees yesterday and today. I have asked them for a press release but they have refused to provide one. I even asked for talking points and this is what we received.
In a statement, Guerin says, “We continuously review and analyze demand for business and leisure travel in every market we serve. Due to low demand for travel between Washington Dulles and Elmira, we have made the business decision to discontinue service effective Jan. 6, 2020. We will continue to offer customer service between our Washington Dulles hub and other upstate New York airports including Ithaca, Albany, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse.”
