American Airlines on Sunday slashed service to the main airports serving New York City, as the region, a coronavirus hotspot, becomes more isolated.

The Fort Worth, Texas-based airline said it will operate eight departures from New York’s LaGuardia Airport, down from about 170 in April 2019. It will also fly three flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport, down from around 80 midweek peak departures in the same month last year. 

Other airlines including United and JetBlue have announced deep cuts to their New York City-area service because of the virus.
