TULSA, Okla. — American Airlines is suspending flights to 15 cities in the U.S., including Stillwater, starting in October.

The October schedule change to remove service to 15 markets is due to the expiration of the CARES Act commitment, according to an official American Airlines press release. The suspensions will go into effect October 7. These changes are only for the October schedule which runs through November 3rd.

American Airlines released its full updated October schedule on August 29 with the November schedule out by late-September.

Stillwater Regional Airport Director Paul Priegel released a statement saying they are "optimistic and ready to serve when the time is right."

Stillwater’s Mayor Will Joyce and city staff are aware that federal financial assistance is needed to maintain local commercial air service. They have been in contact with Oklahoma’s congressional delegation and are urging them to support America’s air travel through legislation.
Despite the recent challenges, our team remains dedicated to providing quality air service to Stillwater and the surrounding areas.
