Traveler loads low on Fort Wayne to New York flights

The Fort Wayne International Airport is reportedly in danger of losing its nonstop flights to New York.

That’s according to Lucretia Cardenas of Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly, who tells the newsroom the airport needs more travelers to make it worth it for United Airlines:

“It’s only about 60%, and it needs to be around 75% load, or more, to make it viable,” Cardenas says.

She says the biggest target for some hopefully increased passenger loads would be business travelers, followed by those who’re interested in getting away for the weekend.
