Delta Air Lines has announced that it is suspending services of Delta flights to 11 airports indefinitely due to lower customer volume on those routes. This step has been taken in an effort to lower costs of operations.

Delta, an Atlanta-based carrier has cut approximately 5% of its domestic flights within the United States starting June 8.

“As the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, Delta continues to face an unprecedented impact to our business, and suspending operations at these airports will reduce costs where customer demand is low,” said Sandy Gordon, senior vice president of Domestic Airport Operations, in a news release.
