(CNN) – New York is the state hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic.
And that’s led American Airlines to drastically slash travel to New York City.
The carrier is currently operating only 13 daily flights into the metro area’s airports, according to USA Today.
Last year American had 271-flights.
American’s senior VP of operations David Seymour said in a statement that “the demand for flights to the New York area is rapidly evaporating.”
This announcement comes one-day after United likewise cut flights to New York.
Other airlines, including JetBlue and Spirit, previously suspended service.
