The company’s vice president for communications and government affairs, Nene Foxhall, and the senior vice president for corporate and government affairs, Mark Anderson, also stepped down, according to the New York Times newspaper’s Tuesday report.

"The departures announced today are in connection with the company’s previously disclosed internal investigation related to the federal investigation associated with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The investigations are ongoing and the company continues to cooperate with the government," the company said in a statement.

According to the newspaper, federal prosecution issued a subpoena over whether ex-chairman of the Port Authority, David Samson, pressed the airline to reestablish flights to and from South Carolina that he had used to get to his holiday home.
