United Airlines has cancelled its service to Birmingham due to the route’s poor financial performance.
The US carrier will drop the New York/Newark service from October 5.
A United spokesperson told the Birmingham Mail: “United will discontinue its service between Birmingham and New York/Newark.
“The last service will be on October 5, 2017, westbound. We have regretfully taken this decision because of the route’s poor financial performance.”
They added: “We will contact customers with bookings for flights beyond those dates to provide refunds and re-accommodate where possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
The announcement comes months after it ended its Washington-Manchester service.
BBT’s sister title Business Traveller is today reporting United will suspend its New York winter route to Shannon.
