Roanoke Regional Airport won't have direct New York flight

Delta has cancelled it


Direct flights from Roanoke to New York City will end beginning late February.

Airport officials say the lone Delta flight to and from LaGuardia Airport is typically between 25 and 35- percent capacity.

Officials say passengers opt to go through Charlotte, instead of directly to New York.

Right now, the airport is working on getting a direct flight to Newark through United Airlines, but say it could take some time.
