United Airlines To End Service to AC Airport

United Airlines is ending service to and from Atlantic City after just eight months of serving the East Coast gambling resort.

"We're disappointed that the service from Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) didn't meet our expectations," the company announced on Friday.
Flights to and from the airport began in April and were hailed by officials including Gov. Chris Christie as a key step toward bringing more visitors and business to Atlantic City. The resort has seen four of its 12 casinos go out of business so far this year, with a fifth likely to close next month.
The airline says service to and from Atlantic City International, which actually is located in nearby Egg Harbor Township, will end Dec. 3.

 United Airlines’ surprise announcement that it is pulling out of the Atlantic City market means that one government agency,The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, spent $2 million to advertise and promote flights from Chicago and Houston that will disappear in less than four weeks.
