Lone flight service to and from a City in Pennsylvania pulled out due to pilot shortage

Residents from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, US, have to travel to another city to catch flights as the last remaining flight service back and forth to the city was pulled out due to pilot shortage. The lack of flight service is affecting the city’s economy and is another sign of the move by US Airlines to reduce their operation using less than 50 seat capacity aircraft. According to consulting firm Zwelbar-Zhong, U.S. operators will operate 40% less flights using small regional jets in March 2022 than they did in March 2019. The main driver for these airline decisions is that the sub-50 seat aircraft require two pilots, like larger types, but result in less revenue potential.
