AMARILLO -- An agreement has been reached between American Airlines and US Airways for a merger.
After several months of negotiations with the state, Attorney General Greg Abbott says he was concerned about the merger because of the possibility that American would stop service to rural airports in the state like Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport.
Today's announcement means service will continue in and out of Amarillo.
