This morning’s bankruptcy filing by the parent companies of American Airlines is not expected to have an immediate impact on the airlines’ flights in and out of Logan International Airport.
“I am not aware of any impact on their operations in Boston,” said Matthew Brelis, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates Logan.
Attempts to reach American Airlines were not immediately successful.
A few years ago, American was the biggest airline at Logan, but has since been eclipsed by JetBlue Airways and Delta Air Lines. American has been cutting back on domestic service as it focuses on international destinations such as London and Paris.
American is one of several airlines to recently upgrade their lounges at Logan in a bid to win more first-class business.
According to the Associated Press, American Airlines said it is seeking bankruptcy protection as it looks to reduce its costs and debt as a way to remain competitive in the airline industry
