The city of Roswell, Chaves County and American Airlines reached an agreement on Aug. 26 to keep air service intact between Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and the Roswell International Air Center, according to Roswell Mayor Dennis Kintigh.

American Airlines announced on Aug. 20 flights would be grounded from Oct. 7 to Nov. 3 to 15 cities, including Roswell due to COVID-19, per an American Airlines spokesperson.

“In the absence of an extension of the Payroll Support Program (PSP), we’re faced with a host of difficult decisions to right-size our airline, given the significant and sustained drop in demand we’ve seen during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Stacy Day.

Kintigh said the city of Roswell got some help from Denver-based consulting firm Mead and Hunt to mediate the issue. During the conversation last week, Kintigh said all sides discussed revenue support.
