American Airlines to keep air service out of Roswell

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.
