NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — The NFTA says Spirit Airlines will suspend service in and out of Niagara Falls International Airport, starting on October 6th.
A note from the agenda of the NFTA's Aviation Board meeting says Spirit Airlines flights declined by 33% between September of 2019 and this month.
The closure of the Canadian border to non-essential travel, and state travel restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic are the primary reasons for the move.
According to the agenda, Canadians made up 83% of the people who parked at Niagara Falls International Airport over the last 12 months.
The airline may resume operations at the airport next summer, dependent on the impact of COVID-19 on the aviation market.
