Southwest Airlines Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly announced this move in the second quarter of the company, citing financial results that were "below expectations" as a result of ground plane problems. The airline, which has more than 30 jets Max in its fleet, has also extended its maximum flight schedule adjustments by January 5, 2020.
A spokesman for Southwest Airlines said in an e-mail statement that the airline would cease operating in Newark begins Sunday, November 3. The change will affect 125 Southwestern employees currently in Newark, although the airline says these people will be offered other options in the company.
we need to optimize our aircraft and resources to respond to customer demand in other markets, "the spokesman said. "All Southwest employees in Newark are offered positions at La Guardia Airport in New York or are allowed to bid for other open positions anywhere in the Southwest Network. We want to thank Newark and the surrounding community for welcoming us over the past eight years and we look forward to offering our customers at EWR in November the same Southwest hospitality they know and love. "
Asked by Gizmodo whether southwest Airlines are also planning to stop operating at other airports, the company spokesman said," our [Newark] employees and our affected customers are currently the company. "
It is unclear when Boeing 737 Max will be released for commercial flights, and uncertainty continues to affect flight schedules of major US jet carriers in their fleet, including Southwest, United and American Airlines. The Federal Aviation Administration said in June that the current review was "after a thorough process, not a prescribed schedule, for the return of Boeing 737 Max to passenger services."
