United ends JFK services

United Continental plans to end service into New York’s JFK International Airport in October. As part of this winding down of JFK services, United has swapped between 12-15 slot pairs with Delta and is shifting its p.s. Premium Service operation to Newark.

“The introduction of p.s. to Newark Liberty, the New York/Newark region’s premier airport, offers Los Angeles and San Francisco travelers the highest levels of service in the air and on the ground,” said Jim Compton, United’s vice chairman and chief revenue officer. “We are investing in the three critical components of the travel experience for our customers – our network, our product and our facilities.”

With its launch of p.s. services at Newark Liberty, United will cease operations at Kennedy International Airport on October 25. United has entered into two separate transactions:  Delta Air Lines plans to acquire United’s JFK slots, and United plans to acquire slots from Delta in Newark. Each transaction is subject to regulatory approval.
