PenAir is leaving Plattsburgh ahead of schedule.

The airline was supposed to run flights to Boston until the end of June, but it announced Wednesday it is suspending all East Coast operations this Friday.

The Alaska-based carrier declared bankruptcy last summer after its expansion to hub airports beyond the Last Frontier failed to generate enough passengers. The air carrier says it mechanics and pilots are taking other jobs so it can no longer continue to do business.

SkyWest is slated to take over the Essential Air Service contract in August with flights to Washington D.C.
