Delta Air Lines announced it will discontinue several routes from Atlanta and New York. Delta Terminal 3 Terminal 4 Worldport The canceled routes from Atlanta are Athens, Greece; Copenhagen, Denmark; Moscow, Russia; Prague, Czech Republic; Shanghai, China; and Tel Aviv, Israel.  Flights from New York that are being halted include Manchester, U.K.; Budapest, Hungary; and Berlin, Germany.

The Atlanta-Shanghai route had been cut back and then discontinued in 2009, but resumed last year with just two flights a week.  All the other cut routes had been previously reduced to seasonal service.  The cuts reflect Delta’s plans to cut its flight capacity by 2% in the next year.

Delta also announced plans to add a seasonal international route from Detroit to Paris, France this summer.  That route will replace a Seattle-Paris route that was previously operated by Air France, Delta’s joint venture partner.
