JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) – Citing pilot shortages and a low number of passengers, a contract carrier for United Airlines is pulling out of the Jamestown and Bradford, PA airports.

Silver Airways Corp notified the US Department of Transportation that they will end airline services at the Jamestown and Bradford airports on or about May 15. The company stated United Airlines made a decision to reduce the number of flights out of Cleveland, which is the hub that serves Bradford and Jamestown.

Chautauqua County officials say they are working with Senator Charles Schumer to find a new airline service for the Jamestown Airport.
