Yeager officials optimistic about NY service

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Yeager Airport officials say they're optimistic another airline will pick up the nonstop service to New York that American Airlines is dropping.

American is ending the nonstop flight June 12, the same day it ads nonstop service from the Charleston airport to its Dallas hub.

Yeager marketing director Brian Belcher tells The Charleston Gazette that while the New York flight was doing well, service from the Dallas hub makes more sense because American has more connecting flights there than at LaGuardia. But New York remains one of Yeager's top 10 destination cities, and Belcher says discussions are underway with other airlines about providing nonstop service.
