Delta Connection's last non-stop flight between Atlanta and Newburgh, New York is on 1 September 2003. Delta Connection offered two daily non-stop flights.

I can't understand why. SWF is much more convenient than EWR, LGA or JFK for a big section of the Hudson Valley region.

SWF, as well as ISP have no high-yield business travelers. Those markets, along with HPN are cheap, cheap, cheap tickets, and the major carriers are finding other routes where they can make money with their equipment.

Even if SWF (or another regional airport) makes a little bit of money, it makes sense for the airlines to move the planes/routes to where they can make more money. That is the state of the industry these days, and I can't see that changing anytime soon...

HPN, cheap? HPN is one of the major carriers dream markets. Restricted accsess+wealthy population base=high fares. American and Northwest both continue to fly mainline to this market.

I agree with MAH. HPN is hardly low-yield.
