Flights from Westchester County Airport to Miami International Airport will take off in December, a Westchester County spokesperson told NBC 4 New York.
American Airlines plans to run two non-stop flights to Miami daily, the spokesperson said.
“We view it as very positive for a lot of reasons. It’s more service to more locations in newer, more fuel efficient, less noisy planes and it’s still working within the constraints we’ve had at the airport," Ned McCormack, spokesman for County Executive Rob Astorino told The Journal News. "This is the kind of balanced growth we like.”
The paper also reported that the flights will depart Westchester at 7 a.m. and 1:59 p.m. daily.
