American Airlines will be transferring accounting jobs from Tulsa to Arizona. About 130-jobs will relocate to the Phoenix area as the American and U-S Airways merge the accounting operations.

Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce Director Mike Neal reacted to the news:

MIKE NEAL: "While the Tulsa Regional Chamber never wants to see jobs relocated out of northeast Oklahoma, we are confident that many great Tulsa-region employers are seeking financial services and accounting professionals and that a number of career options are available to American Airlines employees who do not choose to relocate."

American Airlines says the relocation process should take about a year-and-a-half.
