Uber suspends operations at Lehigh Valley Int'l. Airport

HANOVER TWP., Pa. - Ride-sharing service Uber is no longer available at Lehigh Valley International Airport, however, it's not clear who is to blame for the disruption as both say the other party is at fault. 

Charles Everett, the airport's executive director, said Friday:

"“On Friday, June 30, 2017 at 2:00 p.m., Uber has decided to suspend operations at Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA). Over the past year, the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority (LNAA) has worked diligently to structure a new agreement with Uber that is comparable to other airport facilities using this ground transportation service throughout the country," Everett said. "We understand the importance of maintaining this passenger amenity for LVIA passengers and hope for a resolution in the future."

However, Craig Ewer, Uber spokesperson, issued the following statement:

“We are disappointed that the LNAA has prohibited Uber from operating at the airport, especially at the start of this busy holiday weekend. Travelers around the world rely on Uber to connect with a safe, affordable ride, and Lehigh Valley should be no different.  Our hope is that airport officials will consider the needs of local riders and drivers and work with us to find a solution as soon as possible.”
