Though it has been speculated it would happen since the merger between American Airlines and US Airways, it was made official Friday.
American Airlines announced it is moving its operation center in Moon Township to Dallas. That means 600 jobs will leave the area.
“I guess the good news is, those 600 will be hired, they have the option of working, obviously they’ll have to relocate, and they’ll have to move to Dallas,” said Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald.
For this region, he said the announcement is not good news, thought it wasn’t unexpected.
