United Airlines will end service between Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport and at least eight cities beginning in September, as part of a 10% reduction in capacity at the airport.

The Chicago-based airline will drop flights to Aruba, Asheville, Greensboro, Mazatlan, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Toluca, Tuxtla and Waco from Intercontinental, according to local reports. The cuts could result in its ending service completely to Toluca, Tuxtla and Waco.

United did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

The airline announced that it would cut capacity at Intercontinental following the Houston city council's approval of new international facilities for Southwest Airlines at Houston Hobby airport in May.
