DECEMBER 19-25, 2018 UCW 21 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM Fayetteville Regional Airport Announces Departure of United Airlines Services United Airlines has officially announced that they are pulling its flight route to and from Fayetteville Regional Airport to Washington Dulles International, effective March 7, 2019. The carrier has offered flight services at Fayetteville Regional Airport for the past five years, joining legacy carriers American Airlines (formerly US Airways) and Delta Airlines in February 2013. Due to recent route changes, however, the company is no longer able to cost-effectively offer flights from Fayetteville Regional Airport (FAY) to Washington-Dulles International Airport (IAD). Airport Management recently received the following notification from United Airlines: "As we continuously monitor the demand for travel in every market we serve, we have determined that our current service to Fayetteville, North Carolina (FAY) didn't meet our expectations and is no longer sustainable and we made the difficult decision to end service effective March 7, 2019." "We are disappointed with United's decision to remove services from Fayetteville Regional Airport," said Bradley Whited, Airport Director. "We thank all our customers who used United Airlines service for the past few years and we will use this time to look for new opportunities in the market." Whited has already engaged a consultant to investigate the feasibility of increased airline service to current and/or new destinations. A presentation will be made to Fayetteville City Council at its Jan. 7, 2019 Work Session, which will be at 5 p.m. in City Hall.
