Looks To Bolster Bottom Line In Face Of Expensive Fuel,
The new international terminal at Hartsfield Jackson
International Airport may be a little less busy than originally
planned, as Delta Airlines says it is cutting the number of
international flights it operates from its busiest hub.
The airline says it will discontinue several flights between
Atlanta and Shanghai, a route which has not performed up the the
airline's expectations since it was launched as a daily service in
2008. Other discontinued flights include Atlanta to
Athens, Copenhagen, Moscow, Prague, and Tel Aviv,
according to a report in the Atlanta
Delta had announced a plan to cut flight capacity by two percent
in 2012, and these discontinued routes are a part of that strategy,
the airline said. The airline says it will continue to operate
flights to nearly 70 international destinations from the new
Hartsfield terminal next year.
Atlanta Airport General Manager Louis Miller remains optimistic
that the new terminal will eventually be used to its full capacity
as the region grows over the next 20 years.
The airline is also cutting flights to international
destinations from New York, but has added seasonal flights from
Detroit and Seattle to Paris.
