DALLAS (1080 KRLD) -  A half-dozen Texas communities, including Dallas-Fort Worth, could lose some air service, at least temporarily, because of the Coronavirus.

Airlines like Alaska, Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian, Spirit, United and JetBlue are seeking regulatory approval to suspend flights to some airports.

Fort Worth-based American and Dallas-based Southwest Airlines are not. 

Under the federal Coronavirus stimulus package, airlines who want a slice of the pie have to continue service to all the domestic destinations on their route maps. But they can seek waivers and those airlines are doing just that, seeking to reduce service to more than 125 markets -- most of them small-to-medium sized.

Texas destinations on the list are Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, El Paso, Tyler and Harlingen.
