Airline merger impacts TN airports

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) – It's set to be the largest airline in the world and we know how the merger of American Airlines and U.S. Airways will impact the Mid-South.

Due to the merger agreement, the airlines will cut back at some airports across the nation, but will continue to fly out of five Tennessee airports for the next five years. One of those airports is Memphis International.

It's part of the settlement in the state's challenge to the merger. State leaders say the agreement could lead to cheaper flights in Tennessee.
